I'm still confused by the "Blue" "Blues" "Patrol" "Patrols" uniforms.

This previous thread seems to point to pocket pleats being earlier than the 1930s or after 1949?

Thanks btns

Looking on a silver markings site there is mention of 1909 as the date that Tiptaft went into partnership with his son, is it possible that was the date the back mark changed?

Any other options, Bandsmen seems the most likely to me.

I have found this example which seems to have less piercing/voiding than some, is it genuine and would that make it more likely to be WW1...
