Default 1st Commonwealth Division

A variety of brassards. The RTR example was worn by an officer in 5 RTR. The example with the shamrock was possibly worn by 1 RUR. The first British units to deploy to Korea were drawn from 40 Infantry Division - which was based in Hong Kong, and wore its sign in Korea, hence the inclusion of this brassard. History does not relate what the US Army thought of having allies who wore a "yellow chicken" on their shoulders!
