Some very rare and early SAAF full dress uniforms worn prior to ww2

Recommended Posts

What a great thread and sorry I am so late to seeing it. I have never seen the summer full dress. Wow. Below are some of the uniform types referred to. All belonged to E. A. Pope. Went on to become staff officer, Lt Col, armament office for 3 group in WWII. Fortunately all his pre-war finery survived including his dress blues, undress blues and mess dress.

Also, since some of you have the uniform regulations, does it describe the sash worn with the full dress uniforms and the headgear? Was it the white pith helmet with the springbok?
