Non-Voided RFC Cap Badge

Hello gents,

I think this example is authentic but I'd really appreciate your opinions.
I understand there are some good copies out there but I'm not certain what to look for.

Thanks very much...

I tried enhancing the photo and I'm still not completely certain there's something there.
But if so, it would likely be the four bladed propeller worn by flight sergeants.

Yes indeed.
I was wondering why the examples I found here did not have "Commando" over the top.

SS Commando Badge

Would anyone be able to tell me which Brigade/Commando this badge would belong to, or indeed even if it's authentic? Are these scarce?
Thanks very much for any help you can provide!
