    I agree with René, especially like the "Yukon" style winter cap. My Great Uncle Sid wore one of these during his Air Gunner training in Canada with the RAF. I have shown a pic of him wearing it on the forum. He was also issued Canadian pattern BD.

    Cheers, Ade.

    G'day Gary
    I know Australia did, take a look at the rear of a button, if it has a Y and a number (I'm OS at the min and can't reference my gear) then the button is Aussie made

    Rene, I just checked the buttons and could not see any markings at all on the rear.

    Hi Gary, black plastic ones are British made I can tell you that much.

    Cheers, Ade.
