    Thank you for the replies....all this stuff sits in two trunks in the garage....I occasionally got through it and relive a job I dearly loved.

    The chocolate chip cams were acquired from the Iraqi army unit we were training at the time.....the replica medals were replacements of another set of replicas, after a drunk 1 Armoured REGT digger was dropped off at the 5/7 guard room, where I happened to be guard commander, who then proceeded to throw up all over my ceremonial uniform......he was promptly placed in the cells to sleep it morning the RSM visited the guard room, to inspect us, and there's me in PT gear.......a rather quick explanation, and an "imtroduction" to our guest a "deal" was struck......if the young digger replaced my entire uniform, medals, insignia etc......a few hundred dollars worth....then had them dry cleanest and ironed to inspection standard....there would be no charges.....fair enough

    That's a fine collection of "bring backs". I only have my old uniform , I wish I had "pulled" a few items in retrospect! Leon.
