Unknown red/black triangle

As picture, measuring 4cm across base, and 3cm for other lengths.

Too small for an Essex Regt WW1 flash.

Ideas please, Stephen

Women's uniform

It does not strike me as being British. Are there any maker's labels inside that might give a clue as to origin?

Suffolk Regt anodised

I don't think there is anyone who believes these were an issue item. They did however appear in the Ordnance List of Change so at least a sealed pattern existed at one time.
