I served with some Green Jackets who were formed after the amalgamations. they always said that the KRR would complain about the RB "having too much black"!

For interest, I'll scan and post the 1941 pamphlet for everyone to see.
If you collect caps I have quite a few which I will be selling. WW1 to 1980's (the older ones sold)

some are listed on my mates website www.jzmilitaria.com

My friend has two buttons books listed on his website
www.jzmilitaria.com

The smaller one is good general reference...the larger one covers a much wider range.

Paul
