RCD Model Decals

Wasn't sure exactly where I should put this query, but Mil History seemed appropriate.  I build scale models as a hobby and am nearing completion of a Staghound Mk. I vehicle.  The model came with markings for numerous British Regiments, and the XII Manitoba Dragoons. I have searched every model website I can find, Googled like a madman and have come up empty handed in my search.  I am looking for RCD markings appropriate to the Staghound.  The best site I came up with was a German company, peddinghaus-decals, but after an exhaustive search through their online catalogues, I found none.

Are there any model builders out there who can direct me to a supplier who will have RCD decals of decent quality?  Many thanks in advance, and Mods, if I put this is in the wrong forum, I apologise and understand if it gets moved to wherever you deem appropriate.  Many thanks to anyone who can help.

You can use the Arm of Service marking from the 12 MD; they had the same white 44 on a green-over-blue as the RCD:

The difference is the Corp markings:

1 Cdn Corps, to which RCD Stags belonged to, looked like this:

2 Corps (which I believe is the formation marking included with the model) look like this:

This is the decal sheet you want from Archer... you're gonna have a few left over  :nod:

I think the Sqn insignia would be the same between the two units. Serial numbers would be different, but that a whole other level of OCD.
