Default Royal Naval Division formation badge

Good evening all,

I have been an RND Collector for a good few years and have managed to amass a good collection of ( I believe scarce ) cloth badges.

The 63rd Division formation badge has always been in my opinion the blue circle with red border and anchor.

However I have noticed on the RND Wiki page , someone has uploaded a image of a black circle with red anchor , the anchor chain is in a different position and to me i have never seen it worn or depicted in any book or article.

It looks more like a WW2 formation sign but I would like to hear people's views on this

If anyone could offer any primary source information that would be great

Thank you all in advance

Looks very similar to the patch worn by VADs working in a RN Hospitals.
