Help with Regimental Flashes (D.C.L.I.)

Discussion in 'Military History and Militaria' started by Bodmin-Bill, Oct 4, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone help me?

    The Duke of Cornwalls Light Infantry used a white on red shoulder flash with the text "CORNWALL" from summer 1943, although not issued to all companies.
    Later a version with the text "D.C.L.I." was issued, and here lies the problem, when did the second version come into use?

    A Cornish publication gives the issued date for "D.C.L.I." as 1946-1948.

    Brian L. Davis quotes (ACI 1207), states text was changed to "D.C.L.I." on 9th September 1944.

    (Not to be confused with "D.C.L.I." gold on dark green issued 1949).

    Cheers, Bill.
