For sale is a Rare Single WW1 Officer Training Corps Inns of Court Regiment Brass Shoulder Title with original back plate and pin. This shoulder title states “T OTC INNS OF COURT”, I’m unsure what the T stands for however OTC is for officer training Corps.The Inns of Court Training Corps were based in Berkhamsted during the First World War. The Inns of Court OTC was originally part of the London Territorial Force and consisted mainly of men connected with the law courts. The Corps came to Berkhamsted in September 1914 and did not leave until June 1919. Both cavalry and infantry came to the town although at the time, the cavalry only had one horse! Around 14,000 men passed through the Corps with over 11,000 gaining commissions. Three Victoria Crosses were awarded, besides numerous other decorations. A total of 2,147 men lost their lives and are commemorated on a memorial on Berkhamsted Common where they carried out so many manoeuvres. This is in good condition, and will be sent via Royal Mail 1st class signed for and dispatched within two working days.
