The printed white on black are widely available - looks like the one I have is an "aged" example of the duff one that you show? (No surprise there).

Here's an original 153 Hat felt Gurkha Flash and officers wire beret badge, beret was Navy Blue not maroon at this time. Both from family of a officer that was in 153. The title was from a Forum member.
Blue is slightly darker than the camera shows, and I don't know why the pictures turn sideways, right way up on my machine!

Agree - nice to see attributed items. I have a 155 title, but not 153 ... interesting.

Sorry about the small images.

I am not particularly happy about the Indian Parachute Regiment headdress badge in my frame.

Any comments welcome.

Mike

Your white on dark green (154 Bn?) Looks to be the same as the one I show?

Very similar Leigh. Unattributed unfortunately. I can not get to them at present ... the back would tell us more, if I could.
All the best
Mike
