RTR officers didn't wear Other Ranks brass shoulder titles on BD. And being thats its 7th Armoured RTR unit which had 1 and 5 RTR within its orbat. the 1st wore a Red lanyard worn by all ranks which was introduced in 1934 and Other ranks wore at times the Khaki RTR slip on title. The 5th wore post 1941 the red over light blue battalion colours and this was worn by all ranks thoughout the rest of the war.

Thanks Mr Cosgrove,
The uniform is how I purchased it, as you can somehow tell It didn't have a red lanyard or eppaulette tapes. The Brass RTR badges have already been used on another NCO uniform. I'm sure you can find a million things wrong with it , but If you can do better I would like to see you try, So go f**k off you little Troll.

He can, does and will always do better than you Matt, because he's not a Walting c*** like you are, so why don't you do history a favour and go f**k yourself. And to save you asking, yes, I'd be delighted to say that to your face.

How does passing on some valid info make you a troll?
Random ranting and profanity seem better qualified as the actions of a troll?
Not sure if there is previous here between you but Trunks does seem to know his stuff when it comes to RAC and RTR uniforms. Why not listen to what he says before the swearing?

Hi Sean,
I've got no issues with you, The uniform is 100% original ww2 dated and named, the previous owners had attached the RTR badges when it was in the museum, I have removed them since the pic was taking, As you can clearly see its hanging on the outside of the wardrobe with my other WIPs. My issue is with Pete "telling his granny how to suck eggs" he could have Pmed me and asked but he is too arrogant to do that. I've got no time for him or Jon.
I take it personally offencive to call me a Walt when they're doing the same as me, displaying my kit to the public and doing charity work with my group for H4H etc.

It just sort of went defcon 1 without going through the normal stages?
Even Saddletramp and I go through some preamble/foreplay before we get stuck in.
