Very nice,

I have a Beach Ordnance Title as given to me back in the early 80's by its wearer, its 'twin' is in the D-Day Museum in Southsea since 1984 (now renamed the D-Day Story and reopened in 2018)

I later bought an Officers Patrol Jacket (No1 Dress) from a house clearance, badged to an RAOC Captain with Shoulder Boards with Gilt rank stars, Gilt 'Kings Crown' Collar Badges & Buttons dating it to pre 1947 - In its top pockets were a pair of Blue on Red RAOC Shoulders Titles and in the other a pair of Red on Blue 'Beach Ordnance Titles.

I paid a massive sum of £5 as the tunic was ripped & moth eaton in parts so I bought it for the badges & buttons only. It was indeed a bargain even without the shoulder titles.

As a Staff Sergeant AE the owner was part of 44 Ordnance Ammunition Company, part of 12 Beach Ordnance Detachment RAOC on Sword Beach.

Normandie, Some very nice badges. Truly enjoyed seeing them.

Mike, sounds like one of those genuine bargains for sure. I have always treasured named/ID'd items, as they allow for a little more hisotrical background.

I cut out the named label as the tunic was beyond redemption, but at least I know its history. I keep it along with the associated badges & shoulder boards.

Lovely genuine Liverpool Irish officers cap badge.

( I am of the opinion genuine ones were only ever die cast and not die struck )
