Default Australian RAAF Makers Mark? Amor Sydney

Gentlemen,
I've strained my eyes trying to work out a Makers Mark on the Rear of a Royal Australian Air Force Cap badge, it looks like "AMOR SYDNEY" can anyone confirm one way or the other? Also another for the Australian MM section, the Stokes one is rather lonely.

Amor sounds about right as they were a badge manufacturer in Sydney.

From memory, Amor was bought by Christies. They mostly flog repro items now.
