Default 3rd Dragoon Guards shoulder title

I'm fairly new at collecting so please forgive my ignorance.
I've just seen a website selling a 3rd Dragoon Guards shoulder title which it says is anodised aluminium.
Given that the 3DG's amalgamated in 1922, could it be genuine?
Many thanks.

No.

Possibly misdescribed though. Send a link.

Sorry, yes, a shoulder title was produced in the 1960's in AA. I was focused on cap badge.

It's a genuine item. These were the titles worn by the Carabiniers up till their amalgamation with the RSG. It should really be 3rd/6th DG .

Hi
On amalgamation in 1922 the 3rd Dragoon Guards and the 6th Dragoon both wore there respective cap and collar badges, they received the title 3/6 Dragoon Guards and wore the 3/6 DG shoulder title. they then got the title 3rd Carabiniers (Prince of Wales's Dragoon Guards) and still wore the old 3/6 title until about 1930's when the old 3DG title was worn, in the 60's the anodised title was worn.
