The embroidered on felt version came from the family of an Airborne man, together with embroidered 'AIRBORNE' flashes and 'PARACHUTE' titles. There was some family confusion as to whether or not the former owner had been a wartime paratrooper who had joined the RMP TA post-war, or been a wartime RMP attached to an Airborne Division.

The woven version with a merrowed edge appears to be a DZ or TRF of more modern manufacture, but is not of the design approved for 16 Air Assault Bde.

Thanks, Stephen.
I have the one on the left in my collection, it size is 55mm x 50mm so it is a small size.
