    I really wantd to add a japanese flag into my collection. I just picked this one up. I hope you find it as interesting as I do.

    Para Special Commando Beret

    It looks like Lt. Ramh, and possibly something illegible below it, beginning with maybe a C or an O at the left wing of the plane? (Off Cha...) There is also blue ink by the paratroopers leg that looks like S1S SABRE.

    Para Special Commando Beret

    I just picked up this beret at an estate auction, and I was hoping for any input about it. Am I correct in thinking this is 1960's-1970's based on the tag? Thanks.

    Para Special Commando Beret

    Thank you.
  5. I have two Brodie helmets in my collection, and I really like them. One has a lighter overcoat of paint on it. Has anyone seen this before, or is it something applied by some kid/ collector? Thank you, Paul
  6. This is a Wolseley helmet I have in my collection. What do I have here?
  7. On Ancestry, the medal roll for Flying Officer J. Toulmin has the entry "BW&VM by A/M. 15 Star to PS-3313, PTE. R.FUS." It looks like the same man.

    Legion Etrangere uniform

    I've just acquired this uniform Foreign Legion uniform, and I'm trying to get an idea about it's age. It looks like the dates have been removed. Any help would be appreciated. The paratrooper brevet is not numbered.

    I have this French kepi that I believe to be for an infantry NCO. I'm wondering what era it's from. I'm guessing 1950's-1960's?

    Legion Etrangere uniform

    Thank you . I figured the insignia was added on.
  11. I just purchased this Northumberland Fusiliers cap. I'm assuming that it would date from the 1950's-60's based on the "By appointment to Her Majesty The Queen" title in the makers label. What do you all think? Am I correct? Can it be narrowed down any more? Thank you very much. Paul

    croix du combattant

    I have a Croix Du Combattant that looks like it has been lacquered. It hasn't been gilded, and is bronze colored, just shiny. I was curious if they were ever issued shiny, or if a collector did this?

    croix du combattant

  15. I have a BWM to 27058 Pte Frederick Shand of the Ox & Bucks L.I. Can anyone tell me what battalion he served in? Thank you, Paul
  16. I wonder with the star and thistle motif, if this belt belongs to the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles). Their cap badge had a star that looked like this inside a thistle wreath under a crown.
  17. Thank you Sergio. I had my doubts when I had it in hand.
  18. I just received this long service medal. Any input/opinions would be welcome. Thank you, Paul
  19. Thank you, Pierce. That's a great ribbon bar.
  20. This bar just arrived into my collection. I've grown rather fond of these medal bars.
  21. My first Glengarry: Can anyone help me with what year this code coincides with? I believe the badge is wrong as the tourie is red. Am I correct?
  22. I just acquired this bar, and wanted to show it on the GMIC. I really like it.
