    The zip on the tropical type shirt is an addition and no button holes exist.

    Good set of pick-ups, I especially like the Buffs plaque. I wouldn't object to having it on the side at home.

    Regards etc

    No, sorry, the shirt is a post war pattern. Wartime OR's woolen shirts were collarless.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Any ZA or JA markings on the pack? This would indicate signals related use.

    The Plaque could date as late as 1961 when the Regt dissappeared. I would tend to think it would be 1950's.

    The shirt with zip is hard to date. Could be wartime or just as easily 1950's.

    Cheers, Ade.
