Hi Rob,

The 2nd MG came on a trophy belt along with the 5th ALH badge.

The belt I posted on the forum here:

https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ht=trophy+belt


The Bn patches bought through an auction house in the UK. The paybooks, 12AFA id discs and 26th Bn Group all came from an antiques centre in Brisbane.

all the best Mark
