    Yes, as Gary replied - titles that have been removed from a period tunic and bear evidence of having once been stitched in place.

    Both of these BD tunics bear a type of title that is commonly seen on the market. They are made of a thick scarlet red felt, not commonly seen on verifiably original tunics. Because new Ďsurplusí (unused / unissued) of this type still circulate in the marketplace I have found that more often than not these are the ones found on put together tunics.

    These are often considered to be original titles dating from WW2 or the immediate post war period. If so then itís likely a stash of the unissued ones had been found somewhere.

    I assume everybody is happy with the embroidered, wool weave backing ones then

    Here's my thought: Very, very creative. But I would not have it in my collection for any reason.

    The beret is an original RAF issue (post war) with the markings washed out.

    Cheers, Ade.
