This looks more like a Bell Punch Company punch than an A-Punch, the type of canceller (empty bit of back-plate next to bell punch) that went with an A-Punch had two 'keyhole' shaped slots one above the other, the type that went with a Bell Punch had the two 'keyholes' alongside each other, and this appears to be it.

Like so - http://www.1900s.org.uk/1940s-images/1940s-ticket-clipper.jpg

Some posed wartime photos are misleading - e.g. trolleybus conductresses posing on bus platform (or vice versa) but this looks like a photo taken at home rather than an official one.

The cap badge appears to be white with a blue bar, hence central buses (country buses had plain green, tram & trolleybus was plain red)

which i'm afraid narrows it down to about 50 garages...

The woman who owned our house before we did was a wartime clippie in London. is there any chance you can tell me where you got this picture because this might be her. I need to be able to read her badge number.

Hello Chris,
There is unfortunately no information with this picture,possibly mid forties,maybe other members can shed more light regarding "A" punch Depot allocations this could help pin point certain Depot/s this "Clippie" may have worked from.
