That is possible. I could swear it was tomahawks that he made mention of. Whatever it was he wore, it was a definite red flag that you'd pick a fight with the bearer at your own peril and easily recognized for what it meant (PTI). He said that only one man did take him up on it with regrettable consequences. His fulfilling this secondary duty would have been in the early days in England before Dieppe when he was in the 2nd Division, I suspect. He was sent to Gordon Head for Officer's training just prior to August 42 and would have returned overseas as an Officer to the 1st Division in 43. My remembrance in hearing of this badge is now about 30 years old now.
