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

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.

testimonials

I received the item today, you had packed it well and there were no problems with customs. Overall I was happy with it although the blade was a little bit worse than I had imagined, however thank you for your efforts.
