    Hiya NCA, thanks glad you enjoyed seeing it.

    Just got Ade to add the makers label to the FS cap pics, as I forgot to add it.

    Off to bed now.

    I will try and finish the thread tomorrow or Weds, as Ade has more pics to take.

    Cheers, Lez.

    I have these I can add.

    Cheers, Lez.

    What an impressive collection, how did you get hold of this? I bet she has a uniform made for every occassions. Usually people stick to one tailor but she certainly like variety from all the top Savile Row shops. I bet her shoes and handbags are made of crocodile skin
    I wonder if she might be a benefactor to the services that she joined and participate in PR excercise and ceremonial duties?
    One thing I've learn from this collection is that ATS officer also wears similar hat as enlisted and not just the moleskin type.

    Hiya, this group was sold to me privately as I am "well known" in some circles as a ATS collector. It was sold by the family.

    She was much more than a token figure head member, she was very hands on in fact.

    Her and Lady Mountbatten (her cousin) once took a "pleasure flight" to view the front line near Nijmegen and almost got shot down! They were discussing if she would be taken prisoner as a spy and shot! As Lady M was not in uniform.

    Cheers, Lez.

    I have been cracking the whip and got Ade to take a few new pics which have been added to show her ties and cloth chin straps in better detail. Also some extras added to the AA tunic and greatcoat posts.

    BTW all the tunics have the cloth belts with them, just they were omitted in the old pics we took.

    Cheers, Lez.
