Default Correct TRF for Artist Rifles Special Forces?

I am looking at getting this TRF if it is the correct one for the Artist Rifles Special Forces? It appears to be a brown backing with white design.



Thank you,

Terry

The patch shown by Jon was for 21SAS(R) whose full title is 21 SAS (Artists)(R), as the Artists Rifles merged with 21SAS in 1947.

Just for a bit of pedantry the use of (R) is no longer used for the Army Reserve. The title is now just 21(SAS) Regiment.

Thanks Bess! No question about knowing a real form a fake. The fake I was considering was only£2 on eBay, but that's £2 I can use toward something valid!!!

Have to love this forum and the people on it!!!
