That particular example appears to have very little age to it, so I assume those badges were still being worn prior to 2000 and not just prior to 1985?

I know little about these units but I think 16 Coy is or was represented by a platoon of a later unit.
The insignia continued in use or had been resurrected by a more recent formation?
