Had a nice old chap come-in last week.- he is a former Rhodie and had these items from when he lived

there.

Firstly some UDI badges - nicely mounted to hang in a study.

Don't disbelieve you for a minute, but could you explain the differences, please? What I like best about this forum, besides Chris' beer photos, is the sharing of info. by many many members, each expert in his or her own field. :)

Lots of differences. I had a lot of info about them on my website but last week I shut my site down after 7 years. Two examples below, both worn after 1970. Second photo shows two different variations of the RhSAS para wings for the camo (combat) uniform.
