A recent purchase, a New Zealand made, 1943 dated Battle Dress Blouse badged to a Podporucznik, second lieutenant of the 6th Armoured Regiment Dzieci Lwowskich (6 Pułk Pancerny Dzieci Lwowskich), 2nd Warsaw Armoured Division (Druga Warszawska Pancerna Dywizja). Distinguishing features of the BD blouse are the 2nd Warsaw Armoured Brigade canvas signs, the 6th Tank Regiment strip sign, which should be green, but is in fact a sort of light pale blue, and a single collar pennant in the distinguishing tank troops colours, black over orange. On the BD blouse there was originally only one bakelite "proporzec" on the right collar lapel, and it looks like there gas never been one on the left collar lapel, or maybe have long got lost. So, to make things up, I have bought a pair of slightly smaller 6th Armoured Regiment bakelite pennants, with a different kind of fittiing, though, and I am wondering whether do not reinstate the single original "proporzec". Maybe someone of these very notable collectors of Polish insignia could explain the differences in size and shape of the armoured troops pennants? As long as I know, the medal ribbons are as follow: Virtuti Militari Fifth Class, Krzyż Walecznych (Cross of Valour), Montecassino Medal, 1939-1945 Star, Africa Star, Italy Star. That would make the original owner of the BD blouse a veteran of the Independent Carpathian Rifles Brigade that served in North Africa, I guess? I guess there is pretty much to discuss about this BD blouse and I am very interested in hearing your opinions, Panowie!
