Hello BC

I have attached a picture of a then Corporal from 2 RAR in the early 50's wearing a printed Royal Australian Regiment shoulder title.

I showed him your selection of titles this morning and he explained that when he received the titles to put on his battle dress it was identical to the lower left rectangular title but the backing wasn't as faded. He was instructed by his RSM to trim the excess rectangular material from the title before sewing it onto his battledress. Apparently there were a lot of variants of the title being worn at the time, he has another picture somewhere with a couple of his mates, he recalled all their titles varied depending upon when they joined.

Regards


Dennis
