I stand to be corrected but the 1st Dragoons wore the lone eagle in brass or the lion, crown and scroll badge depending on what year it was in WW2. Your design was post war I think.

I can't answer that (I too would be interested to know) but Alan's earlier post (#58) was intriguing - the journal article states 153rd wearing a "Pompadour red flash on the sleeve" (my italics). I would have expected purple..
