Hi Team

Looking for ID on the flash and what era this would of been used.

The material is felt and feels modern era.

A RA pugaree flash?
(Although a Google suggests 4th Field Regiment RAA).

Hi Leigh

I did come across both suggestions but I have asumed that RA would have been Red Blue and the Black Red was for 1923-1934 period.

And mine looks more modern era? Its quite a thick felt pieces sewn together.

These RA flashes are difficult, if not impossible, to differentiate as to whether they are Pagri flashes or BD flashes. By the size of it, the bind sewing, and the lack of holes for a device, it is most likely a BD flash.

Thanks CB

Good point so I have just measured with the verticle line as the height 6.5cm x 5cm.

Didn’t the Lincoln regt have this as a badge backing at some point.

Here is the Royal Lincolnshire beret flash with the 3 lugged anodised Royal Lincolnshire badge.
Photo from exhibit in the museum of Lincolnshire Life (2011).

Thanks for the input guys.

The only referance I can find is to RA unit as prviously mentioned.

My other thought it might be a reproduction based on the stitching and thick felt.
