Default Corps of Army Music Arm titles

Back in 2014 the journal of the Military Heraldry Society reported that all musicians of bands that come under the CAMUS auspices except the Gurkha Band, the musicians would in future wear cloth shoulder titles in No 2 Dress as follows:

Household Cavalry Band – blue on scarlet; Royal Armoured Corps Band – scarlet on yellow; Royal Artillery Band – scarlet on dark blue; Royal Engineer Band – navy blue on scarlet; Royal Signals Band – white on navy blue; Grenadier and Coldstream Bands – white on scarlet; Scots Guards Band – yellow on navy blue; Irish Guards Band – white on emerald green; Welsh Guards Band – white on black; Royal Regiment of Scotland Band – white on scarlet; Queen’s Division Band – white on scarlet; King’s Division Band – white on scarlet; Prince of Wales’s Division Band – white on scarlet; The Rifles Band – black on emerald green; Parachute Regiment Band – sky blue on maroon; Army Air Corps Band – navy blue on sky blue; Royal Logistic Corps Band – yellow on navy blue; Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers Band – yellow on navy blue; Adjutant General’s Corps Band – yellow on navy blue; Countess of Wessex String Orchestra – gold on navy blue.

A Society member recently acquired this example for the Royal Armoured Corps band sewn to a No2 Dress jacket and sold on ebay. Other members have reported that "Royal Artillery Band" on two lines and "Household Cavalry Band" have been received by regimental tailors and should shortly appear on uniforms.

Has anyone seen any other examples yet?

I received my copy of the Military Historical Society Bulletin in todays post and illustrated in that ( badge 22 on page 118 ) is the cloth title for the "Prince Of Wales`s Division Band".

P.B.

So far I have only seen (and have) is the RAC band title.
If you can point me in the direction of where I can obtain the others it would be great.
RA, RE, R SIGS, AAC, RLC, REME, AGC.
Thank you.

I shouldn't be flippant but.................The sight of soldiers wearing a shoulder title reading COUNTESS OF WESSEX STRING ORCHESTRA would have appealed to Spike Milligan, the other stars of the Goon Show and the cartoonist Larry.

Not a wind up! Perhaps a string up!

Did the QWRAC Band have a title? I've not ever seen a reference to it, but know they had a band.
