Ex Service Associations

O.N.E. is the abbreviation for ORGANISATION OF NATIONAL EX SERVICEMEN/WOMEN.  Like ex-service associations in other countries there are branches located around Ireland and two in the UK.  The dress is  a black blazer with grey trousers/skirt and a black beret.  Branches wear the standard design badge but with the branch name added.   As can be seen branches seem to have their own interpretation of the design.

UNITED NATIONS VETERANS ASSOCIATION.  Only personnel who have served on overseas service are eligible to be a member of this association.  They have Posts in locations around the country and it was originally planned that each post would have its numbered badge (as in Post 1) but it did not materialise and so the standard badge is used.  On the beret they wear a cloth cap badge.  The colour of their blazer is green and of course the beret is UN Blue.
