This photo confirms your facts. The seller has mis-described them as an OTC of course.

Thanks Alan,

That was the post card that made me start the thread, it was a school and itís Cadets that I cannot recall coming across before in any book or list of units.

Peter,

I used to own an identical card, but a real photo and the shoulder strap designations were clear.

I am fairly confident they were wearing 1/C/KINGS metal shoulder titles.

regards
