...very nice find, well done mate it's a cracker. It is actually a Women's Army Auxiliary Corps and was issued between 1918 and 1920, when it was re-named Queen Mary’s Army Auxiliary Corps.

...here is a wee bit about them: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_Mary%27s_Army_Auxiliary_Corps and here: http://spartacus-educational.com/Wwaac.htm
