Back in 2020 I featured some Women’s Service Auxillaries/Volunteer groups. (http://www.austbuttonhistory.com/12th-september-2020/)
I have stumbled across some examples of WANS (Women’s Australian National Services (WANS) uniforms. They date 1940-6. The uniforms were “mid-blue in saxe tonings”.
These following comes from the Museum Victoria Collections
You may notice that the South Australian version has 4 hole blue plastic buttons, whereas the Sydney version has 2 hole buttons that are a different design and a slightly lighter blue. There were two tenders accepted in Sydney, but persumably there were various manufacturers around the country.
