Default RLC Real or Fantasy TRF

Hi folks

Here are a couple of RLC Flashes. Are these fictitious?
Cheers
Sean

Sean,
Orientation seems wrong as the RLC TRF is worn 'square'.

A number of these are turning up, also the large RA TRF with similar iron on type numbers that match the current Regtl,. ORBAT.
Example.

Just wrong and totally fictitious - Do not buy - I asked a 27 Regt Officer at RLC Open Day in early July and he said nothing to do with regiment or the RLC.

They are based at Travers Barracks, Aldershot and are part of 101 Logistic Brigade and Union Flag, RLC TRF & 101 Brigade snake is all they wear. They were the admin for the Open Day...

The rules on army patches are very clear since CGS cracked down on them a few years ago. The only TRF worn by the RLC is the RLC TRF. With the odd exception such as 16 bde DZ patches, there is only one TRF per regt or Corps. Even Brigade and Div badge variations have been brought into line.
