Yes Rob, previously had one in mine if it is the same as the link bc put up. I can't see any image in your post.

From memory I don't think it was a worn one.

Thanks bc.

Rob, my photo is too small to establish detail as it is in one of the whole collection. It was 8 Bn as well.

The colour patches changed quite a bit, different materials used and different stitching from the info I have read.
