Do you remember if the oval badge was worn in the pictures you have seen?

If so, was it worn as a collar badge or hat badge? Was it worn by Dentists, or just by the (female) dental...

Hi Mick




I am not trying to pick on you or anything, but I cannot assume this obvious possibility as implied in the title. This is because the driver's vehicle is pictured in the background,...

Hi Phil

The titles at Spinks sure fooled me when I first saw them. They are good. Scary thing is that they could have been better if someone had hand finished then with a file etc afterwards.

LA shoulder titles

Hi

I would have some reservations about these titles. Have a look at the solder splashes on rear of the titles. They are the same. They should be very individual. I suspect that you have high...

Did the breeches have piping?

I have some breeches in that thin, green cord fabric that matches the odd green colour of the 1931 pattern tunics. They are not piped.

All the best
