I suspect that the bit of uniform was actually an epaulet from a German 1st regiment uniform. Red stitched number one on a brown epaulet, looks exactly like the 1st division SSI.
Years ago I contacted the First Division museum about this. They deny it. Still hard to deny the similarity, especially when you look at the earliest examples. German ones look almost like sevens, so do the numbers on the earliest SSI.
My father's WWII division, so one of my favorites to collect.
Some of my variants.

Attached you can find a patch I got from one WWII Military Police display... I think it can be of your division (hand made). What do you think about it?:
