Is this a BBC Commisionnaire's uniform ?

Postby tracker » Sun Jul 24, 2011 9:44 pm

This is my great grandfather in 1942. He was working at the BBC then as a commissionaire so could this be his uniform. I know the war was on then but as he would have been 61 I don't think the uniform is anything to do with the army etc. Can anyone help please ?

It is certainly the badge of the BBC that the corporation was using at the time that he has on his cap so I would assume that he is in staff uniform.
the link below should show what the badge would look like.

if the link does not work a quick search on the 'net for "BBC badge" should throw up some images for you to view.
