Default Rhodesian SAS PTI crossed swords trade badge

Hello and greetings from Durban.
please see attached snap of Bones Botha in late 60s/early 70s.
notice the PTI crossed swords trade badge.
it appears to be silver bullion on blue felt background,
compare with sergeants stripes below it.
seemingly similar in colour and background colour.
it would be like the attached Dudley Wall's image but light blue felt.
does anyone have an example of this crossed swords trade badge?
if so could I have a hi-resolution scan?
very many thanks.
