    This is a set I bought to go with the TT divisional patches I got from my grandparents, who lived in Bayeux (Normandy) in 1944.

    East Yorkshire shoulder titles

    They do look original to me but I would be interested to know how to spot the differences between war-time and post-war shoulder titles.

    Hi Didier

    Cloth shoulder titles that were used during WWII have paste back on the reverse and yours show that.

    The Formation to me WWII C 1944 , I have one similar to yours.

    Thank you, Phill!

    The formation badges are bound to be 1944 production or earlier as they were given to my grandparents when the 50th Division liberated Bayeux, in June of 1944. I am glad to learn that the shoulder titles are period correct, though, as my goal was to find matching titles for the formation badges.

    Regards from France,
