Hello

        I wandered if anyone could help with identifying this item and if it has any value please? 

Regards David

Interesting!  I'd say, judging from the size, that it is a piece of whatever the WWII equivalent of 'trench art' was.  The cloth looks a bit coarse for a handkerchief and the stitching is exactly the sort of thing I, or some clumsy trooper, might do in a quiet moment.  Very probably genuine, I'd say, as it would be such an odd thing to fake, unless it came with a great story and a big price tag.

Here's an example of the 7th Armoured's shoulder sign, a slightly more complex version than this - hand painted, obviously - example.

Hi Gents

I've just been googling and sadly saw this....

the description says "old reproduction - possibly stage prop..."

i still like it but...

To me, if this is another one it would seem odd - unless you have bought one of a pair from the same person....?

hope this helps
