I'm painting some Warlord 1940 BEF figures and a couple of them appear to have some kind of brassard on their left arm.

Can anybody give tell me what it is, I'm thinking some type of gas warning device, and what color it is suppose to be?

It is a gas brassard. They were brown in 1940.

Thank you, Marin. I kind of thought that might be the case but wanted to make sure.

They were various shades of brown (some quite dark), so you can paint them a different colour to the khaki uniforms if you want.
