Hi Guys, this is a badge which was designed but never made production, having been rejected by the Army.
The 6th Airborne Armoured Recconaisance Regt of 6th Airborne Division wore a mixture of cap badges. Most men wore the standard Recce Corps badge, while others wore their old previous armoured corps or cavalry cap badges.
One trooper designed this badge in the hope it would be adopted as the standard pattern just for this Regt. Sadly it was rejected. I think the design is great, combining the RAC and Para cap badges.
My friend met the Veteran who still had his prototype badge and made a casting from it which I have photographed here.
