I looked around and this dealer out of the UK came highly recommended. They have a vast array of British and Dominion insignia, rank, formation signs, brigade and bn, shoulder titles, qualification badges, service stripes, flashes, cap badges, etc etc.

A bit pricey compared to other places, but I just got my stuff, and it's top-notch. Everything embroidered, no printed economy versions. Haven't sewn them on yet because my BD has yet to arrive, but they feel robust and should take some wear.

One small problem was that I ordered maroon shoulder slips for 9 Para, and received pinkish-red, almost fluorescent ones instead. Near as I can tell this was the shoulder slip of C Company, Ox and Bucks in the Airlanding Brigade of 6ABD. I contacted the vendor, expecting to have to mail them back for a return, and they said don't bother, not worth your trouble, just keep them and we'll post you the correct ones for free. So, quite pleased with their problem resolution, also.

Overall, recommended if you're willing to spend a bit more for really nice insignia.

And, mere days after realizing the mixup, I have the correct maroon shoulder slips in my hands. Super-impressed with the service and quality of this vendor, who has my highest recommendation.
