Infantry Regiment Shoulder Titles

Regular price $6.43

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Excellent quality reproduction shoulder titles.  These have been meticulously designed by ourselves and our manufacturer, utilising original examples, in order to produce a very close replica. 

The titles are machine sewn on scarlet felt, with off white thread and a close match 'cheesecloth' backing. The style of stitching has been closely mimicked and the edges of the felt 'roughed' slightly to reflect the fact the originals were hand cut and not laser cut like modern manufacturing techniques would dictate.

This type of insignia was seen from mid-war onwards as the British Military heirarchy became less concerned about the use of distinctive insignia than they were earlier in the conflict.  Early war/Dunkirk period shoulder titles were olive drab to match the battledress and slipped onto the epaulette.
