Help with Regimental Flashes (D.C.L.I.)

#1
Can anyone help me?

The Duke of Cornwalls Light Infantry used a white on red shoulder flash with the text "CORNWALL" from summer 1943, although not issued to all companies.
Later a version with the text "D.C.L.I." was issued, and here lies the problem, when did the second version come into use?

A Cornish publication gives the issued date for "D.C.L.I." as 1946-1948.

Brian L. Davis quotes (ACI 1207), states text was changed to "D.C.L.I." on 9th September 1944.

(Not to be confused with "D.C.L.I." gold on dark green issued 1949).

Cheers, Bill.
