    Can you provide any period photos or other reference evidence to support your view i have never seen such a trade patch for Officers ??

    I beleive that the original badges were made in wire for wear on the Black uniform not for Officers but this was changed to white cotton thread once the Field grey uniform came into use !!
    I dont believe that in period photographs you would be able to distinguish between cloth and wire. I saw said example on a modern photo of a tunic; sadly I have been searching and searching without being able to find it. I am sure of its existence . But after D's and your points, I've come to the conclusion it's very possible that it was a postwar constructed tunic. I am man enough to admit when I am wrong......... Which I am. Thanks for the new information. I will continue search for the photo, and post it when found.
