General Service Corps Shoulder Titles

In WW1 and just before, did privates/NCOs/specialists in the General Service Corps have shoulder titles to put on epaulettes, or get them specific to a unit when they were assigned a regiment/corps etc? I can't find any information anywhere.

Re: Team / House Liverys for Recognition

The applique is sewn on roughly, as it's supposed to look like it was done by the soldier the jack belongs to, to bring them luck. Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
