    It certainly resembles the brass version in shape, but seems to lack the metallic look in the B/W pic - but then that could be the lighting....:confused:

    She looks a lot better in reality ..but not a society beauty !!!

    Thanks for looking in

    Kev - loving this one, a really sharp paint job!

    As you say she is not a beauty, but the face fits the time period.

    What do you reckon on the brass stirrup badge ...would it look better in white? It looks like it could be either the picture is difficult to work from ( I blame Steve..lol)

    Thanks for looking in

    I would go with the brass version (although it may be metallic embroidery), the white on grey looks like its from a ww1 ward uniform (First Aid Nursing Yeomanry not only drove ambulances they also ran hospitals and casualty clearing stations for the Belgian and French Armies)
