I have to say that the designs put forward by Rex Whistler were excellent,
although too expensive to produce.

Excellent Paul.

Many thanks for taking the time to re-post.

I would just like to add my appreciation for the time/trouble you will be spending on re-posting the war diaries/appendices for 56 Recce.

That is some serious commitment to the forum and all credit to you Paul :smile:
I am sure other members will echo my sentiments.

Thanks for posting these, a really interesting read. I had never considered before how they design the cap badges.
