Second one I had years ago and I've a mug parted with it. It's correct.
Cheers

The left wing is a fake.
The right bullion wing is 100% original and quite rare.
The tunic is a made up fake.
All the items map/paybook etc are original.
If you study the tunic you can see it has all been made up to appear original.
Leather knot buttons are all new, colour patches are unissued (original) but not been on that tunic very long. The AFC wing on the tunic is the good example fake wing that has been floating around a while. Tunic is just a british tunic badged up to make it Australian. Caveat Emptor.
