Hello Zob,
Thanks for your reply, does your reference describe the color, size, etc of the flash worn by the Tripolitania police? This one is not sewn onto the hat, but held in place by the slider of the badge. It has been there for some time as the area of the hat covered by it is not sun damaged or faded.
