    I looked again the lanyard.I think that the colour has faded,it looks like grey but some threads at some point are indeed blue.If it wasn't blue, is it a problem for my jacket?Thanks for your interest!

    Lanyards are a specialist subject which has not been studied and there are so many variations that pretty much anything goes, so no problem. I have a Royal Fusiliers SD tunic with two lanyards on it, so who knows what that is about, one is a pistol lanyard and the other is very dark blue.

    as jerry said RE lanyard was navy blue, looking at your pics there does seem to be some faint red treads showing, so i'm not sure !!!!

    Great idea for a soundtrack while we ponder the lanyard
