Whilst RMF officers seemed to be consistent in wearing the shamrock cap backing, ORs seem to have dispensed with it for the most part, at least in the field. I am sure there must be photos extent,...

This badge is generally thought to be for the Pagri, but as with many other so called Pagri badges, no photo evidence seems to exist showing them in use as such.
