The sign also featured on letter headings and signs etc.

Their web site showing the sign board and flag was where I got the initial identification from. But no images of anybody wearing a badge.

Have you tried contacting the Gurkha museum in Winchester?

Yes, the reply prompted me to ask on here.

"The badges appear to be repro copies of “Gurkha Field Force” and “British Gurkhas Nepal” unit Identifying flashes. They do not look official issue and I would be wary of including them in a publication as official British Army."


As Mike has posted the colours are right for '48 Gurkha Inf Bde' ('Gurkha Field Force') but not the design as I know it.
