That almost sounds like they were an addition to the parts book, possibly recently.
Do they appear in all 750 Commando lists (not having 750 lists to compare).
REAR BRAKE SHOES (PR) 7" (06.0828, 06.0013, NM16547, NM19584, A2/443, A2/444)

Note there is no mention of these slippers here - so are they needed or not ?
