    John, I don't know how many WW1 camos have retained their provenance but I know it's extremely rare. To have not just the provenance but an entire grouping from a soldier is fascinating and quite honestly mind-blowing. One of the best WW1 camos on its own, bit add in the provenance and this has to be one of the top 2-3 WW1 camos on the planet.
    But can it pass the Q tip test....?
