A very short lived patch from a very small unit. 299 now wear the 1 Sig Bde patch in line with the policy on unit patches.

Yes. In 2015. By 2016 the direction was given that all unit badges were to be removed and only bde badges were to be worn.

Not to worry, I'm sure a well known seaside based seller will start thumping them out for those of us who never came across one!
