Response to C.A.S.F. 1939
Thanks Ed, That must have changed, and I will have to keep an eye as I work through the documents. It may not be in there, as the documents are not RO's or GO's. The procurement information suggests that each soldier got a lot more than a few titles. Cloth wore / faded out and would have to be replaced frequently, so a larger scale of issue would have made sense.
Just a note on your scale of issue, I believe that the 2 pairs of shoulder badges refered to metal shoulder badges or worsted slip-ons. I don't think the worsted was on issue at that point in time, and coloured cloth shoulder titles were still in the future. (Excpet for a couple of regiments and corps.)
