1928 to 1935
This period saw a second series of dress uniform. These epaulettes displayed below were detachable and worn on the normal service tunic. General ranks wore gold insignia.
1935 to 1955
These are the epaulettes for the dress uniform worn between the mid 1935's to 1955. As you can see there were two colours, GOLD and SILVER (depending on the Corps). The two gold epaulettes displayed below show how over the years the gilding can rub off.

NOTE: Gold was worn by the Air Corps and Artillery. Silver was worn by the Infantry
1955 to 1971
These are the epaulettes for the dress uniform worn between 1955 and 1971. The uniform was very plain and the absence of collar badges did not help. There was a short period in the late 1970's when officers of the Signal Corps wore miniature size collar badges.
