Presumably the advertising card was distributed with other unit badges which were perhaps produced by different manufacturers.
The first time I've seen one of these cards.

Edit: I typed "beret" badge - the badge is cap badge sized, it's not the beret badge.
Congratulations Leigh, and well done on collecting this extreme rarity. It looks like an inexplicable find, but a highly desirable addition to any AA collection.

Please can you say what the dimensions are? Mainly, how high is the badge, from base of scroll, to tip of crown?

Many thanks and congratulations again.

Awra best
