I suppose it could be RAChD but I have never seen another badge faded to such a light shade!

Hi Luc,

I believe these are Belgian made, ligt purple indicates 'General staff'. But like with other colour combinations there is a very thin line between Belgian and British made strips.

My question is really if I could sell these as RACHD or not

My personal view is that they are not RAChD but having never seen a AOS for them before who knows.

Hi,
For comparison, these are dutch made, brabant weaves, clearly RAChD for me.

Hope you will see here. They are the same as your dutch made RAChD strips.
