Very nice!! How many more are there out there? DO you have them all?

Unfortunately not. There are quite a number of berets I'm still looking for : Armd Car Regt, Medical Corps (midnight blue and marroon), Staff Corps, as well as a couple of others - preferably used (there's a message there ! :rolleyes: ).

One last headdress remains to be posted, a RhSigs SD cap but I must photograph it first. I should done it before the end of the week.


The only bush hat I have is the standart camouflage one. BTW, it looks like people are crazy about Rhodie bush hat - one offered on eBay recently went over GBP 100 !
