Default Malaya / Borneo formation patches

Hi guys,
I am trying to find out if the SAS wore any (special) formation patches during the emergency in Borneo (I believe 1962). Could somebody tell me?
During the Malayan emergency they wore the patches with kris (see pic for my variations on display). I am BTW still looking for other variations.
Cheers,
Pieter

G’day Pieter

By chance I have just started watching at documentary on the SAS and it shows an original piece of film of an SAS officer wearing the kris shoulder flash.

Try the book "The Jungle Frontier" - Peter Dickens full of SAS photographs with out the censorship.

There is a group pic of 1 Troop 22nd and they wear no insignia on the shirt other than the wings on right arm above the stripes.

Of the pictures of the jungle patrols no insignia is being worn. Its what one would expect.

Just to confirm mate. NO divisional insignia was issued at ground level for the Borneo Campaign.

Nice display set up!

Hi very nice display of ` kris ` signs thanks for showing , i think this is a very underrated sign from a collector point of view , i presume because it post 1945 ,Pieter , with respect are you aware this sign was locally manufactured in wire bullion on cloth for that period ? its rare but does turn up now and again .
hope this helps ,regards,Nemo
