Looking following the link ideas Collar clasp often with Peaky blinders seems to match the safety pin style quite well.

Yes I remember the 80s ones, but I've not seen holes in collars (not in wardog's link either) as the 1980s shirts had, so that seems different. I suspect something more like a cravat pin, as that...

It isn't the 1967 squadron that would be connected, can you tell me anything about the 63 Signal regiment ? I've not managed to find anything ? All searches go to 63 Squadron. Cheers :)

Thanks Jon, I'm not convinced about the Signals connection as there isn't a previous mention of that, so might have been incorrect. The fact no 63rd Signals comes up easily maybe backs that.
