Set of 7 x 1st Parachute Battalion AK Hat Flashes, Aden 1964

This is in excellent condition and is a set of 1st Battalion AK (Afrika Korps) Hat Flashes.
(The phrase comes from “hats AK” which was slang for “hats Afrika Korps” which refers to a peaked combat cap with a neck flap. The British Army issued such factory made hats in plain khaki in the Middle East in the 1950s and 60s but they continued to be popular in Airborne Forces, later made in DPM by unit tailors. Normally worn as patrol caps with the neck flap folded up inside the cap. Unit flashes were sometimes worn on the sides - normally smaller versions of battalion DZ flashes but I’ve heard company ones were worn in the 1960s) These are in coloured felt on khaki drill (cut from an original hat, what a waste!) with folded edges as follows:
1st Battalion - Maroon square
Black/White square - HQ Coy
Black lightning flash - Support Coy
Red triangle- 'A' Coy
Blue triangle - 'B' Coy
Yellow triangle - 'C' Coy
Green triangle - 'D' Coy

This is a full set of 7 x Individual DZ Flashes and if required are available at £65.00 each, however if just one is bought then the offer for the full set of 7 becomes null and void. The remainder will be advertised for sale individually.
The price of £380.00 for the complete set now appears more tempting.
