      Adjutant General's Corps bullion badge for comparison to outline on the beret in question, this one's about 48mm tall, 44mm wide at the scroll.

        This is my one, Leigh, but I haven't got access for measurements

          Looks in better nick than mine.
          I only put the measurements down to give an idea against the "ghost" of the missing badge.

            the badge traces are c. 48mm wide and 40mm high

            Senior officer badges are way too big, sadly....

                  Not many army badges found on RM Cdo berets with the exception of 24/29Cdo and attached personnel who earned the beret, Im sure there was a hole in RM intelligence up until recently and the Int Corps works/ed closely with them, the shape fits
                  Paul

                  From memory when I served with them there were commandos from

                  Royal Marines
                  Royal Navy - Medics, Photographers, FAA, Marine Engineers on LC, Signallers with 148 Bty.
                  Royal Artillery - 29 Regt
                  Royal Signals - attached to Y Sqn
                  Royal Engineers - 59 and 131 Cdo Sqn now 23 Regt RE
                  Army Catering Corps - attached to 29 now RLC Badged
                  RCT - Commando Log Regt now RLC
                  RAOC - TA Cdo Petrol Troop now RLC
                  REME - Commando Helicopter Force and Commando Logs.
                  Intelligence Corps - HQ 3 Cdo Bde
                  Parachute Regiment - One officer at BdeHQ wore a Para cap badge on the green lid.

                  An officer with any of these units could have worn a cloth cap badge on the Cdo green beret. Although 1 Rifles are no longer in 3 Cdo Bde a fair few men passed the AACC and some of these have now gone into the reserve at 6 Rifles

                      Amazing to see so many replies and options for the missing badge.

                      Thanks again to all who have replied.

                        Apart from the RM badge I think the only one I've ever seen worn on the Commando beret "in the flesh" is by a RAOC officer in Strabane, NI, around 1974.
                        His was a metal, possibly anod al badge, painted green.
                        If only camera phones and mini digital cameras had been around then instead of Kodak instamatics that kept breaking themselves if you kept them in a pouch or flak jacket pocket........

                            Heres an unlikely, but have have actually met one. An RAF Officer with commando beret. He didn't want to talk about it much . Used to work in the med centre at mobilization centre Chilwell. Every one usually came through there.

                              I have a silver on rifle green commando dagger badge that I was given . It was made by the Garrison Tailor in Bulford. There isn't a general issue version of the badge.
