Royal Army Service Corps -Air Despatch units .

 

Maufactured / Printed / embroidered. / Wire bullion ( Far East )

 

Thes are the war time examples with clipped tail to the Dakota  , later manufactured badges had the full tail .

These have been applied to khaki cloth first before stitching to uniform  this was often done as the Printed formation sign soon became tatty along the edges and this help prevent it BUT  todays fakes  of many formation signs are often sold this way to hide the rear of the badge as this is often the best way to detect if the badge is a copy .
