Default Help needed with Transvaal Scottish pith helmet flash

Hello everyone, recently I came across a chart of South African pith flashes worn during the second world war. I've been trying to find out if the Transvaal Scottish had their own pith flash, and what it looked like. To my surprise, I saw what the chart claimed to be the flash of the Transvaal Scottish.

Just for confirmation, is this the pith flash that was worn by the Transvaal Scottish during WWII?

The picture is just a representation. The actual flash was a piece of “Murray of Atholl” Tartan cloth
