    Default My II Korpus BD blouses

    I do not know whether i should have joined the "Show us your Polish displays", but I feel that a separate thread for PSZ badged BD blouses could be of some use. I therefore will start by posting some pics of some items from my collection for your considerations and remarks. Here I start with a 1944 dated 1940 Pattern BD blouse fully badged to a lorry driver of the 5 Kresowa Dywizja Piechoty. Insignia seem suspiciously hand sewn, but are all very consistent with the period and theatre, being quite evidently of the bullion worstened type made in Italy.

    Then comes my favourite blouse. Tailor made, badged to a private of the 3 Dywizja Strzelcow Karpackich, a veteran of Tobruk belonging to the Headquarters of the division. At that time I paid for the whole blouse much less of what would be needed today only to buy the 3 DSK HQ collar badges. The blouse lacked the 3 DSK breast badge that had been added by me later on.

    I just found this thread and I really appreciate these Polish BD's. The array of insignia is great to see.

    I have a few 8th army patches made with metallic braid to form the cross and I think they might be for Polish troops and are very similar to the example on the first BD.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.
