Default FIJI titles

Shaun,

Can you date the attached titles please? I've used this thread rather than start a new one to try and keep the titles linked to your albums.

I believe the 'FIJI' is WW2, but what about the other? What did the Fijian unit wear in Korea?

Thanks, Stephen.

Default NGVR

Hi, do you want to include the NGVR (1938-43) and the later PNGVR? If so I am able to help.

Thanks to everyone who let me know about Shaun's passing. I was unaware, and hope that my message has not upset anyone.

Stephen.
