The material is felt and feels modern era.

A RA pugaree flash?
(Although a Google suggests 4th Field Regiment RAA).

Hi Leigh

I did come across both suggestions but I have asumed that RA would have been Red Blue and the Black Red was for 1923-1934 period.

And mine looks more modern era? Its quite a thick felt pieces sewn together.

cheers

These RA flashes are difficult, if not impossible, to differentiate as to whether they are Pagri flashes or BD flashes. By the size of it, the bind sewing, and the lack of holes for a device, it is most likely a BD flash.

Thanks for the input guys.

The only referance I can find is to RA unit as prviously mentioned.

My other thought it might be a reproduction based on the stitching and thick felt.

cheers

Phill
