    Tasmanian construction (T 20) is a real bonus.

    Woww~ Fantastic ..

    Back in the 1960s we used to be able to simply order these tunics through mail order disposals and they were genuine Militray.. no repop &^*&@ !

    Then in the 1970s ~ I hung out with ( what is now considered Bad Dude Bikies) and we used to use / wear Military great coats complete with standard Batt buttons ~ (Mine had medical corp buttons) ~ Mine cost me $7 !

    Man! What ever happened to those fantastic real deals I bought!

    Woow!

    G'day Gents
    Buna/Paul Yes this is the one on Ebay a couple of weeks back. It was discribed as 2/40 but Hoffman only went over to the AIF (3rd Divi. AASC) from the Militia in 1945. It's certainly a 40th Battalion mini.
    I paid "drug money" for this one as it had a tripple Tasmanian connection. Hoffman was from the Hobart area, 40th Derwent Battalion and T20 manufacturer. It just had to stay in Tassie under any circumstances. (I sacrificed my monthly Militaria coin for this one, no new 1930-42 Militia insignia for a little while )

    Jack The 40th "Derwent Regiment" was a Tasmanian Militia Infantry Battalion with linage back to the WW1 40th Battalion. During WW2 it was part of York Force and garrisoned Darwin in the Northern Territory.It was during this period the Battalion transfered over to the AIF. In May '45 it was combined with the 12th battalion to form the 12/40th battalion and accepted the Japanese surrender of Timor 3 Oct '45 at Koepang as part of Timor Force which is a tad ironic as the 2/40th (The only fully Tasmanian raised 2rd AIF infantry Battalion in WW2) was captured there in Feb '42.

    All the best fella's
    Dave
