British Shoulder Tabs


Recommended Posts

I recently got a pair of British shoulder tabs, slip on type, I was told they are WW1 era, can anyone confirm this? I have not been able to find out much on them so far. Thanks in advance.

Suffolk Regiment (Infantry - counties Regiment).
They don't look like WW1 or WW2 pieces. I had a few singles many years ago. First of all, they should be on rough khaki serge sliders, they were embroidered in white for WW1, and WW2 versions have black embroidery. Of course, there were also the denim battledress blouses in WW2, but I haven't seen matching insignia, although much British cloth insignia was printed in WW2.  These were in place of the previous otherwise brass shoulder titles.
