Default Cloth star badge

Is there a definite identification for this embroidered cloth badge, please?

Size matters star tip to tip one and five eighths.

I've only seen the woven (and in the case of the one I have mispelled "SEPTUM") version.

I would imagine that you're aware of this thread showing a similar embroidered but "Quinque Juncta in Uno" badge to the one you show:

Thank you Leigh, I missed that thread but did see the collection image with the supposed WRAC version. The WRAC Association have been asked and no one remembers seeing it.

I think it reads Septum Juncta motta (or motto) In Uno. The seven joined in one I believe was the Household Division motto but that was Septum Juncta In Uno.

Here it is as referred to in earlier posts but still a mystery.
Card from the Professor Charles Thomas collection sold and dispersed a few years ago.

The word motto comes from Latin through the Italian meaning saying. The plural (I am guessing it is neuter) so would be molla - giving seven mottoes in one. but this is, as said, a guess.

I know that this is speculation but did the WRAC have a cloth/bullion version of the arm badge worn in the Guards division recruit training ???
I have anodised and metal version.

These badges were worn on the left breast never saw them on the arm. The girls I have asked if there was a cloth badge have said no.
