Yes, I own it :) Nice grouping, with lots of documents and photos. Cool part of the story for me is that Stanley Perks served in the Raiding Support Regiment during ww2. Also took part in the Battle of the Imjin River.

Thanks for the reply!  And after many years....we meet.  :D I suspect this could be a centerpiece in any collection, but should you ever wish to pass it on, please let me know.  At the time this was for sale I had little knowledge of British items and didn't understand the price point (plus emedals is typically on the higher end) nor did I appreciate his WWII service.  Definitely a beautiful collection of items and a rare uniform.

What sort of content is included in the photos and documents?  If you are able to photograph or scan I am always looking for units photos or notated photos and rosters to help with future research and identification.

Thanks

Robert

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
