Default 153 RAC (8th Essex) cap badge backing

Permitted to wear the Essex Rgt cap badge on their black RAC berets, was the badge attached directly to the beret, or did it have a backing patch (presumably Pompadour purple if so)?

Hoping someone may know and thanks in advance.

Searching through 153RAC’s war diary, the Essex history and their box at Bovington I’ve been unable to find any corroborating evidence for a badge backing on the beret.

John,

Thankyou very much for your reply. I have only seen one photo of a squaddie from 153, and the detail was not good enough to make anything out. It seems you had a thorough search! Thanks again. Richard.

I have this in my files if it is useful (unfortunately I cannot remember where I got it from).

I suppose it would be more useful the right way up!
