Nice. Either 2/1st or 2/2nd Independent Light Tank Sqn (later Armd Bde Recce Sqns) depending on whether the green or brown part of the patch is worn to the front.

I wonder if the pictured troops are 1st Lancashire Fusiliers, 29th Div, and that the back patch was actually yellow over red. Just a conjecture.

Actually if you Google 'SAS beret Australia' you'll find dozens of images -- in more configurations and of better quality than I could provide.

Please don't apologise -- I didn't want you waiting around for me to get my act together. I'll try to post a photo or two in the next few days.

A very impressive lot of original survivors. Also interesting to see two completely distinct types of 30th Div sign. Thanks for posting.

When the 1st Bn Rangers (formerly 12th London subsequently 9th KRRC) served in Greece in 1941 as part of 1st Armd Bde, were they wearing their own cap badge or that of the KRRC? And if the former,...

Except that I acquired it a long time ago and paid a pittance for it. So whoever did it put in a lot of work for no appreciable purpose or gain.

Thanks, Alan. This is it -- I don't really know what to make of it. It 'feels' like a good badge but I've never seen another example with an attached scroll.

Brecknockshire Bn question

Can genuine Brecknock Bn cap badges have 'tagged' (i.e. separately attached) scrolls, or is this an indicator of a fake?

Thanks. I ask because I have this, acquired from an extensive collection of Scottish militaria. It's 2 inches (50mm) in diameter. It could be something other than 9th Div, of course.

I've just come across this post of Bill's while searching for pictures of an actual CRT patch. What a great example, and obviously very rare. What is the size -- 3 inches square?

Thanks for that. It's just that I have acquired a 1959 ptn Denison smock with a pair of AD formation signs and which appears to have had a standard parachute brevet on one shoulder.

That's fantastic information, Phil -- many thanks for going to all that trouble. From the list of makers and types would I be correct in assuming that the a/a Motto was in use by the 1960s?
