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

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
