Default Forces KC badge issue delay

British army delays King Charles cap badges over China spying fears https://www.ft.com/content/11272883-...2-666c886ba8b8

According to the Financial Times their could be a delay in the manufacture of the new KC badges for the forces because of fears that the Chinese, who apparently manufacture some of them, could put tracking devices in them!

Why are we letting the Chinese make badges for are forces anyway?

I know we've contracted out to other countries for various kit, but we should, in my opinion, keep all manufacturing for our forces, firmly in the UK.
