    My first thought was Pioneer Corps as their arm-of-service stripe was red and green. But this is a regimental flash I don't recognise. Wild guess....light infantry.

    Anyone know a good source for regimental flash data ?

    Cheers,

    Pat

    Could be Durham Light Infantry perhaps? They use red and green as regimental colours, and used a very similar flash in WWI for their 13th Bn, except its in reverse

    I also found another diamond flash worn by the Foresters in WWII, recorded as green (left) and maroon in Warings ID Pamphlet No 1, so another possibility...
