Gareth Davies Posted 21 January , 2018 Share Posted 21 January , 2018 There is a chance that the answer to my question is a date after the Great War. If that proves to be the case I will get this thread closed/moved. On 18 January 1917 the decision was made to adopt distinctive coloured shoulder strap badges in order to identify and distinguish individual Battalions of the then Heavy Branch. The colours chosen were: A Bn Red B Bn Yellow C Bn Green D Bn Light Blue At some stage the 4th Bn (as D Bn became) switched to a much darker blue. Does anyone know when this happened?
