specific troops. Also exists in various sizes and different locally-made types with no manufacturer's
mark on the reverse.

 

Monitor - Started in the 1960's and used until there was no longer an airborne. The first issue had
the rings as part of the badge and not added. If you find one of these, buy it because it is very rare.
