Default The West Midlands Regiment.

Does anybody have any information on the West Midlands Regiment. I know it was short lived, but did it have it's own cap badge.

Am I correct in guessing that each company wore its own cap badge?

Default West Midland Regiment

The only unifying insignia seems to be a Tactical Recognition Flash (TRF)
