A pair of blackened brass Durban Light Infantry shoulder titles, worn between 1897 and 1920. A good match from the front but different style of fixings to the rear of each. They are in good condition but with equal wear to the black finish. Each measures circa 3.7cm x 1.7cm. Not to be confused with the Durham Light Infantry, although the Durban Light Infantry do appear to have worn the DLI cap badge until 1919. Possibly blackened for war service.
