The Captain’s epaulette comprises a black wool backing and 3 Irish Guards style regimental pips. The attractive pips are raised in silver bullion wire and green shamrock on a red backing. The edges are trimmed in silver bullion wire.
The next epaulette is similar to above but with one pip denoting a second lieutenant. This one has an Irish Guards button on it.
The silver bullion wire is now quite dulled. This could be brightened up with some very careful cleaning.
