    Items like this were private purchase. I can see why you like it so much.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Cheers Ade, were there bought from the army do you think? Similer to the shop on like a US aircraft carrier were they sell hats , patches etc?
    Maybe it was something a civilian shop makes? The rising sun looks to official for that though

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Does the badge look to have been added to an existing frame, or made as part of it? Looks great either way.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Hi mate nice frame! These frames were sold here in Australia in shops and photo studios during the war, something for proud mums wives or girlfriends to put a picture of their soldier in uniform in. I have several tin frames like this plus other wooden types as well. They would put a rising sun on almost anything during the war.

    Cheers Luke.
