    Default 57' awards on civilian clothing.

    Gents...please post your photographs of veterans wearing 1957 awards on civilian clothing, be it every day wear, dinner suits or traditional garbe, (no military uniforms, there is already a thread depicting such wear). I will start the ball rolling with a studio portrait of an elderly gent in traditional costume (looks to be some sort of hunting/shooting association jacket)...he has a nice selection of awards, his name is unkown
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
