    Thanks. Maybe it was another museum. It was told too me a very longtime ago.
    I do not even remember who came up with it!! Maybe the person even was
    mistaken and meant this Sydney-flag, who knows?
    Maybe others from Australia may know more about this??

    Yeah this was the only 'Australia' related flag on display at the Memorial that I saw, they do have a massive amount of items in storage though. Something could be stashed away
    in their vaults, I don't think they know what they really have.

    Yes the W-SS tunic is fake, so is the jump smock on the Crete para figure, and I had to laugh when I saw the Wehrmacht issue clothing whip described as an SS whip from the
    KZ at Buchenwald.

    Wim, your description of the Sydney flag is superb, and thanks for the magnificent correction, (and to you too Bob).

    Best wishes
