RAF Chaplainsí Assistant denominational sleeve badges from the 1950ís. Chaplains Assistants were all women who generally attended to the spiritual needs of female RAF personnel, as well as assisting the RAF Chaplain in his general duties. They wore the same RAF uniform as the WRAF but with distinct cap and other badges. A series of badges were introduced in 1953, including three denominational shoulder titles in both light blue on blue/grey, and red on tan for the tropical Service Dress. These seem to have lasted until 1960 when the denominational badges were replaced with a simple 'Chaplains Assistant' shoulder title.
