Default Civil Defence Corps "R" inside knotted rope badge

I recently added a page to my civil defence website about Civil Defence Corps badges (although my main interest is WW2, I get more requests to ID CDC badges).

I've utilised both the information and some images previously shared on this forum.

One last badge to ID conclusively is the "R" inside a knotted rope. I've see a few suggestions but had nothing concrete regarding this badge. Anyone know the full SP on this badge?

Hi Craig
That's from a picture in one of my albums, years ago I bought a sack of Civil defence badges from Exeter car boot, there were hundreds of "Devon" titles without the yellow edging and quite a few of those "R" badges, I assumed they were post 1949 rescue qualification or instructor badges?

Bearing in mind the designs of other CDC instructor badges, this is likely Rescue instructor.
