    Possibly the manufacturer of the Epaulettes?

    A lot of copies of flashs and that sort of stuff knocking about though!

    Authentic Reproduction.

    How many Sgt Majors do the Aer Corps have, so how long is the production run going to be?

    Epaulettes (shoulder piece) are not the same as sliders (attached to uniform chest area) I presume?
    They would be the same unless there is a subdued version.

    Havilland, seeing as you are referencing that website (very good one), the guy who owns the website
    is (was) in the Air Corps, and was involved in the design of the sliders for the Air Corps anyway
    Somewhere on the website, he mentions that earlier versions of the sliders were of inferior quality to those which followed
    Maybe it's possibel that there is some very small design flaw we've not twigged, which has resulted in these sliders being rejected
    and ending up for sale on the Internet ?

    Yes, there is a subdued version for use when wearing the DPM uniform
