Default Unknown RECCE flash

Has anyone seen this RECCE flash before, I am thinking RCD but I am not sure. Not a official patch for sure, but interesting.

Hi MIke

Nice patch. I've never seen one before either.

Is it "sew on sleeve" size or perhaps for an epulet? Any idea?

D Sqn RCD was overseas numerous times in the 50's and 60's in a Recce role. Both UN and NATO. It is a lazy D and the whole thing is RCD colours so......maybe.

Not a patch worn on a uniform. It is the type of patch worn on wind breakers etc.
