Those are correct Suffolk Regiment collar badges for the WW1 era, but not routinely worn on service dress.  They were intended for full dress tunics and undress frocks.

The pre-1902 collar badge had two towers and post-1902 triple towers and a flag.  The change was due to a war office order standardising the representative design for the fortress of Gibraltar to be used by all regiments with that campaign honour.

thanks frogsmile... so would it be inter war or post ww2? i think he dug it up.


Any time after 1902, but worn on khaki service dress from around 1924 onwards through until battle dress was introduced in 1937.
