Royal Anglian Beret backing.

I am trying to dispel a long running argument, what does the black tombestone shaped patch behind the Regimental beret badge represent?
I am sure i know but someone does not beleive me.
Answers please would be very helpful from all you Pompadours ,Poachers, Steelbacks and Viking's out there.
actually, the 9th Foot (East Norfolks) were given the honour of burying General Sir John Moore - in 1881 the Norfolks were permitted to wear a black backing to their cap badge in recognition of this. I think this is what the Army calls a golden thread :wink:
