An original WW2 RAF Warrant Officers tropical rank bracelet attributed to W/O E.W. Leefe 1684401 who was an Observer.
This item features a brass WO badge fitted to a piece of khaki drill material that is specifically designed for the badge. Such items were common in the Far and Middle East as they meant the owner could be in a state of undress but still display his rank.
The strap features hand stitched button holes and a metal buckle. There is some damage to one of the holes in the step and general wear and grubbiness as can be seen in the photographs.
Overall, a nice original item worthy of further research!
