Pair of Green Felt Slip-ons (Officer Training Battalion?), Metal titles removed
These remind me of something that may have been worn by a Officer Cadet Battalion (the 6 Oxford OCB wore a green slip on for example). There is evidence of two holes on each for a metal title. the gap between the holes is circa 4cm (you have to look hard to find the holes). Circa 7cm by 5cm. Anyway, somebody may have a use for them or know who wore them.
