Default WWI SA DR Insignia ?

Hi Guys,

I was thrilled to finally add a Great War South African motorcycle Despatch Rider badge to my collection - pic attached.

Can I ask if anyone knows of any image that shows this badge actually being worn?

Cheerio,
Roy

Thanks Andy,

Appreciate that mate.

I would be interested to see any images of it being worn.

Cheerio,
