Default Bomb disposal

My father was a sapper in bomb disposal from 1959-63 and my question regards what insignia if any would he have worn.

Quite possibly the Royal Engineer shoulder title on each arm of Battledress blouse and a BD trade badge on the lower right arm.

Thanks for the information, luckily I picked up a shoulder title almost exactly the same a month or so ago so just need to find the bomb badge, funnily I remember him saying he was issued a kings crown beret badge when he joined the unit in 1959

Dave, my Dad was RAF, serving in Malaya during the emergency in the 1950's in the RAF - and he gave me his badges when I was a boy - all Kings crown, so there was a lot of ut about (using upnstocks no doubt).

Regards all
