    I have now got the Transkei special Forces Beret badge with bolt fitting and the nuts are intact, and now I'm looking for A stable belt to match.

    Here is a piece that I have just put up on my site regarding the para and SF insignia worn during Transkei's brief existence. Many thanks goes to zvev aka Chris for his assistance.
