    I have not been able to locate this helmet flash on any of the Canadian references I have access to.
    Is it possible it is a British unit?

    thanks for your help !

    i dont think it's a british insignia.

    The three that i know are canadian made, and transfert insignia.
    british used most painted   insignia than transfer.
