Default No.1 Commando Salamander Patch

Hi all

I recently acquired this No.1 CDO patch at an estate clearance in Australia.
It certainly looks to be WW2 vintage but I was hoping for some clarification from anyone who may have one or is familiar with these.

Thanks in advance

Using the Album's here, I am not a fan. (Although this is way outside of my own area of collecting). Compare it to these images:

Front

Back
https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ictureid=11100

The back of the example you have in hand looks far too like the spaghetti mess of threads that is usually associated with fakes and forgeries that come from India/Pakistan.

Default Salamander patch

Looks awfully like this one aged up a little.

Simply put,

That is 'not' correct, sorry to say.

Cheers,

The badge originally posted has all the tell-tale signs of an Asian sub-continent reproduction. Some of these look good -sometimes very good - from the front but horrible on the back.
