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 like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P

    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
