At the time, I considered having the ‘Pompadours’ done as well, but decided against it as, if you start doing ‘obsolete’ units, where do you call a halt?

Thanks for this info

Andrew,I go past the Leicestershire/Northamptonshire company location in Corby a bit. This is one of the now 3 Royal Anglian companies,the noticeboard outside shows the blue,red and yellow flash upon it. I presume that this what they are wearing as a TRF. If I get a.chance,I'll stop and see if I can "purchase" one from them.

The Steelbacks is private purchase badge, The TRF has been used since 2006 by the 3rd Btn but they had a badge made with STEELBACKS in black with a blackborder on green in Dec 2017 to be used on day sacks etc

That's a great idea, you never know what you might find.
