The red and yellow would be B Sqn 2 Cav Regt I think bc. I seem to recall both being worn at Inf Centre in the mid to late 1970s on tankie suits by their dismounted troopers, can't remember what the correct name for that speciality was.

Hi Keith,

That's an early 'B' Squadron, 4CAV patch. The other squadron patches were all made in the 1970s by my ex Troop Leader's wife.
