Default Overseas service chevrons?

Gents, I'm happy that these are overseas service chevrons, but not totally sure which era. WW1 or WW2 time frame?

Thanks chaps

Regards all

Bess

WWII, WWI stripes were blue and red only used for the 1914 stripe.

Hi

I have a set of four large blue enamel chevrons complete with a backing plate. No red one but maybe he just missed out?

Also a small lapel-sized grouping that does have a red chevron and placed within a large letter "C". Was told that this was for "Canada" and it came from....Canada!
