Title Pair of Royal Flying Corps shoulder flashes
Nationality British
Period c 1914-17

These were introduced by Army Order 378 of November 1913 for NCOs and ORs, normally worn stitched to the shoulder of the wrapover tunic. They were discontinued in 1918 with the start of the RAF. There was a later pattern with sans serif lettering.

This pair shows minor age staining, one of them having a small moth hole. They have been cut from a tunic, complete with khaki cloth surround. At some point they have been glued to a board for display purposes.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
