Commonwealth patch.

I am familiar with the British Commonwealth Forces patches as worn in Korea. However, I have this one. Is it British Commonwealth Forces as well? Or was it for some other deployment?

Hi Northman. There was a ERI cypher pattern RCA helmet plate, introduced in 1904. How widespread that issue was is a big question. The GVR badge was approved in 1910.
