In response to Phil's request....

The flash with the Jimmy and the Signals colours is the current Signals formation flash. The old 'bokkop' (buck head) has been replaced by the Jimmy.

The one directly below is the Army Gymnasium flash although the colours are 'off'

The other 3 are apparently 'fantasy' flashes i.e. the units did exist in some capacity but the flashes were never approved by SADF Heraldry.

I hope that helps ?

Note: They were included in some flashes that I purchased a while ago.

Hi Mark
It's an impressive collection. Hopefully the forum will help it to grow.
