Shoulder titles were worn by the King’s Colonials on both Full Dress, Undress and Service Dress directly on the tunic or on shoulder chains as shown in Figure 283. Figure 283: Close-up image of the KC shoulder title worn by an NCO of ‘B’ Squadron (British American) from the King’s Colonial group photograph (Figure 209) circa 1905-06 (Peter Nemaric collection).
The first type of shoulder titles worn were the letters ‘KC’ in gilding metal (Figures 284-285). These have loops positioned east-west which lack feet. This pattern of shoulder title is referenced, but not illustrated or numbered in Westlake under King Edward’s Horse. This pattern of shoulder titles were worn from 1901-10.
