    WW2 I would say James, going by the herring bone braid, certainly post war examples are a bit different, though it might be pre WW2, hard to be precise on these. I'll dig out my examples later and have a look.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I had a look at my sets, and they are not post WW2, but do match the sets I have from pre 1945, though when exactly they changed to the typical post war versions I could not tell you, but IMO they match those from WW2 and I would be happy with them as of that period. In the attached picture, the obviously post war version is at top right, whilst the others are all circa WW2 IMHO.

    Hi,

    Found this thread to compare the sergeant and lance corporal stripes I picked up last weeks.
    Both pairs were sold to me as original WW2 period items. There's a little bit of difference in the
    colours. The front of the corporal stripes are a bit lighter and a bit smaller in with then the sergeant ones.
    I like to hear you're opinion about them

    thanks, Menno
