They came in about 1975ish I think, when foulies with epaulettes came about, ready to be corrected though.

I can't remember when they were phased out but they're rarely, if ever, seen nowadays.

Yeah, the old foulie jacket epaulettes.
I remember them, and that was mid ‘90’s.

So, I reckon, they were phased out when them nice jackets with reflective stuff were introduced. Early 2000’s (ish)????
