Default Royal Norfolk cloth shoulder title

Good afternoon everyone,

I am uploading photos of a Royal Norfolk regimental shoulder title. The titles I have seen normally have the words ' ROYAL NORFOLK'. This one is 'ROYAL NORFOLK REGIMENT'. It has a black paper type backing. Can anyone shed some light on the period of this badge and why the wording would be different.

Many thanks
Bill

I have one of these, a fairly recently acquired item and I have wondered if they were ever worn, any information would be welcome.

Any photographic evidence of wearing them would be great.

I believe I did previously own one but I don’t have it now. I’m assuming it’s just a variation possibly a manufacturing mistake. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen any pictorial evidence.

I have not seen anything showing this title, ie no books, no photos, only these three……. So far. My guess at the moment is , it’s too long to be worn on the shoulder.

Could it possibly have been made for wear on a greatcoat?

Thanks for the replies everyone. Any photos of evidence of this being worn would be interesting to see.
