Hi, It looks like an ATS cap to me. That's the womens arm of the British army, mostly served on the home front. The same caps were worn by F.A.N.Y. and Mechanized Transport. Think Samantha in Foyle's war - the actress played by Honeysuckle Weeks, who was his driver.

Here you go. Not Red Cross not Nurse. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auxiliary_Territorial_Service

By the way, I've got almost the whole kit as I am a patternmaker and want to copy it. I have the two hats, cap and garrison, shirt, tie, tunic, skirt, and slacks. I'll post a photo one of these days.
