    All looks WW2 and original to me.

    The RCASC group is mostly unissued Canada home service insignia, the green diamonds being Pacific Command, principally the West Coast defences. The white chevron is an upside-down service stripe.

    They have arrived and also included some free stuff, the medal bar and the photograph.

    Some British items, two shoulder titles to the RAOC (royal army ordinance corps) and one for the Worcestershire infantry regiment, a cap badge for the East Yorkshire regiment, then Canadian items, a cap badge and two cloth shoulder titles to the Royal Canadian Ordinance Corps and a group of Canada titles, Royal Canadian Army Service Corps titles, Pacific area formation patches, GS patches and a service chevron. Also included were two free items, an unknown medal bar (which I will search for when I have more time) and a very nice photo, of a Luftwaffe NCO with lots of medals and showing his flight boots.

    It has done something strange with one of the pics, again

    Hi Jerry, the medal bar is US: Good conduct (red/white one) and the European African Middle Eastern Campaign medal.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade. They were familiar and I knew they were not British or Canadian.
