53rd Welsh Division, R.A., G.P.R. Officer's tunic.

Purchased this morning and, whilst I am certain that the tunic is original, it looks as if a pair of Glider Pilot Regiment wings have been removed.

The date would seem to confirm my theory that the black crepe arm band was worn to commemorate the passing of King Edward VIIth, possibly by those officers attending the King's funeral.

If it is official, it might be to mourn the passing of King Edward...

Durham Light Infantry W.M. shoulder title.

Having carefully read through my copy of Westlake I am not entirely convinced that this badge was ever issued. Is it a modern fake/fantasy item? It certainly has no age to it.

T/RAMC West Lancashire W/M Shoulder Title.
