Default QRH TRF?

Is the TRF with the cipher on it something to do with the Queen's Royal Hussars?

I've already managed to identify the others.

Thanks Mike. I thought it might have been in Robin Hodges' book, but it didn't appear to be there. Mystery solved!

Thanks Marc. Is that what Mike meant by 'C' Squadron?

HQ Squadron
A Squadron (The Devil's Children)
B (Balaklava) Squadron (reformed as a command and reconnaissance squadron in October 2020, previously an armoured squadron)
C (Duke of Edinburgh) Squadron
D Squadron (The Black Pig)

That begs the question...do any of the other QRH squadrons have their own TRF?
