Default Raiding Support Regiment beret badge

Hello all,

There have been some recent auctions that featured RSR beret badges, which have prompted me to give some thought to an RSR badge variant I've had for several years.

I was lucky to obtain for my collection a well worn but typical RSR badge from a Forum member, so I set aside a variant I'd obtained previously, due to its differences from the more typical badge. The variant always intrigued me, though, because it's well made. In particular, it seems to me the variant is constructed on a distinctive woven base fabric that I've seen in other original badges made in Egypt and Italy, including a PPA shoulder loop in my collection and some of the recently auctioned RSR badges.

Could the Forum members take a look at the attached photos of the RSR variant badge and give me your impressions? I trust the collective knowledge of the Forum, and I'd like to know either way whether this one has some merit.

Thanks in advance,
Always looking for authentic badges from WW2 parachute & special units
