Default 18th Infantry Division round sign

The division's windmill sign is well known, the majority of examples found being printed although there are also some embroidered versions.

I have been aware for some time of a circular version but have never seen one, the only evidence for it being an extract from an unattributed photo as shown.

Does anyone have an example of a round embroidered version that they can share please?

It doesn't answer your question, but this is the image - Pte Alfred King - later No 1 Cdo.

Default Norfolk flash

Intriguing combination of badges not usually seen on a greatcoat.

The regimental flash appears to be dark/light dark. The Norfolks used various combinations of black and yellow, but not in this format which is the BEDFS & hERTS BUMBLBEE FLASH.
