Thanks very much, Talos. That is an excellent contribution. It seems that the 2/13th Battalion had two different patches that were worn on the back of the jacket. There is the officers’ grey rose, and this red diamond. I wonder if the diamond was for OR. This must be the patch you mention at the IWM

Many thanks again,
Chris

The following is an illustration in The Lambeth and Southwark Volunteers, by J. M. A. Tamplin, (a book about the ‘24th Londons’). It features a soldier wearing a pagri flash in Palestine during the Great War. Most illustrations in this book are of the above mentioned unit, so one might presume we have a picture one of the ‘missing’ patches.
The artist is said to be a Mr H Page. A quick look at the medal index cards does not throw up any 2/24th Bn candidates though there is a QRWS man. Perhaps They have illustrated the parent regiment as the flash may look similar. If the 2/24th Londons wore such a flash, it would be a departure from the other brigades in the 60th Division. I have attached it out of interest.
