Default Explosive Ordnance Disposal Insignia

Hi all from Canada! I'm hoping a Australian collector can post an image of the insignia worn over time of the Explosive Ordnance and disposal troops. I have a odd EOD patch in my "Spare Stuff" album that I'm trying to nail down.

Cheers,

Greg

hi greg
best bet would be to post a pic of the item in question.
what period? official or unofficial? several questions needed to pin it down without a pic

With no desire to nit-pick EOD stands for Esplosive Ordnance Disposal - surely?

Hi all, yes Eddie, EOD is Explosive Ordnance and Disposal. Attached is the mystery insignia I have. Cheers,

Greg, My understanding of the term EOD is Explosive Ordnance Disposal.

It's not an Australian patch.

This is in the style of the R.A.F. EOD patch but who is PARA trained. It could be one of the many patches being produced in Afganistan for unoffical wear in theatre??

Wasn't it decided last time that it was a fantasy fashion item?
