    Hi Ade
    Would it be of any help to tell you the Adjutant General's Corps (AGC) Lanyards were/are Red & Black!

    Cheers

    I'm thinking for all ranks of the RAOC (red and blue twisted) as approved on 2 June 1950.

    Lanyards, they certainly appear to be one of the least understood of any British insignia. Four members responded all with a different answer, which is about right in my experience.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Looks like yours is Doubled so may not be the same!

    Thanks for the input anyway.

    This one came on a 37 pattern BD devoid of any insignia.

    There is certainly scope for a book on lanyards....

    Cheers, Ade.
