Other Description:

The 42mm x 32mm oval tag has two 5mm slots at each long end that have appeared to have corroded away. The inscription reads from top left to bottom right and is very difficult to make out.

Historic Context:

Regimental number ‘3970’, the centre character appears to be ‘company’ and the left hand script reads ‘Infantry 267’. The inscription appears to show the military unit, refers to a ‘company’ and belongs to an infantryman whose number is ‘267’. The tag seems to have been negated by a number of vertical lines striking out the text.
