    It appears that about ten years ago a group of Rhodesian RLI and special forces veterans made an unofficial metal Combat Infantry Badge (CIB) for wear at reunions and parades. The metal badge looks like this:

    I am looking for one of these for my collection and will trade or buy it. I already have the cloth one so am looking for this metal, unofficial Rhodesian CIB. Anyone have one?

    Thanks for that image, Zvez. The documentaion I have seen indicates it was patterned after the U.S. Army's CIB:
