Guest jwillia5 Posted 8 January , 2004 Share Posted 8 January , 2004 Hello there, I wonder if anyone would be able to clarify some detail for me regarding a a cloth patch I have. It is arched in shape, red in colour and bears the title South Lancashire. I am told it originates from the Great War and obviously from the S. Lancs regt and that it was worn at the top / shoulder end of the sleeve. Are you able to confirm that for me, and also clarify whether all men/all ranks/all S. Lancs battalions wore these as part of their usual dress and what dates these were introduced? I haven't found a clear picture of a S. Lancs uniform (as yet) but have an interest in a private of D coy, 8th Btn. who died at Ypres, 1917. Thanks a million, Jane Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
