    Unknown Epaulette (?) Badges

    Post by Ian B on Thu Jul 24, 2014 5:13 pm

    Good day gents,

         Looking for some help again, identifying some unknown badges that I have had in my parts box for some years.  I think they are epaulette badges, but I'm not sure.

         Left hand one is "ISC" -- Infantry School Corps?  The one on the right is "71".  The letters are about 20 mm high and the numbers are about 21 mm high.







         Any help in identifying unit and time frame would be much appreciated.

         Cheers,

         Ian

    The title is likely for the Indian Signal Corps. (The official designation for the service corps was Indian Army Service Corps.)
    The numbers are another question. They may be related to the ISC title, or for something completey unrelated.

    So, we're thinking not Canadian?  As I picked them up in NB, I was thinking Infantry School Corps (with a Company in Fredericton, before they became The Royal Canadian Regiment) and the 71st Bn. of Infantry (which later became the York Regiment, and then joined the Carleton Light Infantry to become the Carleton and York Regiment).

    So these are not of any style of shoulder title worn by Canadian units then?

    The backing plates are not usually associated with Canadian insignia. I don't think they have a Canadian connection.

    OK Bill, thanks.  I'll try on the 'other' forum across the pond.
