I have always supposed they would have been the Airborne ones, seems the ghost outline of the removed arcs seem to be longer than the outline of the usual RASC titles.
I always thought it was only the RASC parachute units that wore the "AIRBORNE" titles, the air despatchers wearing the standard "ROYAL ARMY SERVICE CORPS" curved titles.
