Default South African Despatch Rider ???

Hi Gents,

I thought I would post my new Despatch Rider patch here as it has been suggested that there may be a South African connection.

A splendid gold bullion patch on black.

Not seen one like this before, so it's a long shot but no harm in trying.

Cheers,

Roy.

My guess is Deutsche Reichsbahn.

Thanks for that.

It crossed my mind too but in looking at insignia from this unit (see attached) I thought maybe not. Also the use of DR on these German badges appears to normally be below the device.

Cheers,

Roy
