    G'day All,

    Here's my example, the quality of these is just outstanding

    The early 1st model 1938-1939...had horizontal zipper fly......and did not have the emergency pull ring to open the front of the suit in emergency.
    The second model had A vertical zipper fly.....plus there were other changes in the sleeves and collar......
    will post a couple of photo's in a short time charging camera batteries.......................Dave H
