That's from experience I'm afraid rather than any happy snaps from work!

The only example I have in my collection is a Tantalus shirt with rank badge and subdued SBS wings aquired from one of my peers as a nod who left Poole as a WOII.

Chaps, the rank slides are not fantasy items and are demandable/obtainable. See attached.
Are they frequently worn? That is another question.
So do not be confused with what is available to be worn and what is actually worn. They are different entities.

As a rule of thumb, 'reserve' units have full stops between lettering.

Jon, you are aware of the provenance my 'bits and pieces'.
