Jon,

Royal Engineers Officer's patrol jacket.

Not unusual in itself but this is a rare survivor as it still has King Edward VIIIth buttons.

The rank badges are very close together but appear to be original. Sadly, there is no label saying who...

As 'Vincent' transferred to the 13th King's Regiment around 1942, it is possible that he was part of a draft from the 8th, Territorial, battalion Royal Warwickshire Regiment that did so.

I am asking 45 plus 2 U.K. postage for this QE2 Royal Army Service Corps flag. It is in good condition for its age, (pre 1965), but has one or two small marks.

The flag measures 6' x 3' which as...
