Default 501 RAF Regt and No.1 PTS KC

my latest 2 acquisitions. 1 from Yate and one from a member of the squadron:
- 501 Royal Auxiliary Air Force Regiment on an MTP blanking plate. This insignia has now been approved by the Powers that be and is worn by the Squadron. I presume that it has a (City of Gloucester) or a (City of Oxford) part of the title also, but not currently aware. There's also been a crown badge on black produced, my source tells me (but he didn't have one of them unfortunately).

- a King's Crown Number 1 Parachute Training School on black cotton. Never seen one before. Very high quality embroidery rather than the more modern printed on white cotton version.

Nice to see another new RAuxAF TRF. The full title is 501 (County of Gloucester) Squadron. They have been reorganised and it is now a Logistics Squadron not RAF Regiment. However your badge is for 2624 (County of Oxford) Squadron not 501, it has also reformed to a Role Support Squadron in 2013.
