Hi. I'm new to this forum and based in the UK. As part of my collection of military bits and bob's I have a DPM tropical shirt dateing from the 70's or 80's the label is very washed out but I can see it's size 8 and made in Darby. In the left sleeve are some Para wings and on the right is a TRF I can't identify, a square diagonally devided black or dark navy over red.
I know that the New Zealand military used a fair amount of kit that was very similar to if not identical to that used by UK force's, so wondered if instead of a British TRF it was a New Zealand tac/formation sign?
"Drop Zone Flash for the British Para Logs or Parachute Logistics Regiment of the Airborne Brigade. Made in felt so pre 80's (when units tended to switch to the woven nylon pattern). Not sure why he's wearing it with the black at the top as I note on Wiki it's shown with red at top. They did keep changing patterns as units were added dropped or Titles changed."
