Default Special Air Service Cloth Beret Badge

Would appreciate members thoughts on this Special Air Service cloth beret badge.
I suspect that it is genuine, just a little modern.
Any views appreciated and welcome.
Will be offered for sale if and when judged to be genuine.

Thank you

Paul

The weave on rear looks similar to a copy I had a while back.

A modified or specially made badge for a charity event ?

SAS Who Cares Wins 64KM run!

I came across this SAS ‘who cares wins’ charity event. This is something I have signed up for and currently taking part in! The goal is to run 64KM throughout the month. When you sign up, your money goes to a charity called ‘combat stress’ but I’m hoping to raise more money for this charity!
