Default DEVON ACF - Query

I have been offered a Devon ACF brassard where there is a yellow strip - like a smaller AoS strip of old - beneath the county badge. Does anyone know the significance, please? (I have another one without the strip).

Don't know but there is one on-line with a red strip:

https://www.militariazone.com/cloth-...4#.YvDyu6DMI1I

Could they be a "company" indicator?

A (EXETER & EAST DEVON) COMPANY, DEVON ACF

B (PLYMOUTH & DISTRICT) COMPANY, DEVON ACF

C (NORTH DEVON) COMPANY, DEVON ACF

D (SOUTH DEVON) COMPANY, DEVON ACF

The one I've been offered I think is the newer pattern with a scroll "Devon" below.

Many thanks - logic suggests they are Company related.
