    Considering he is selling current RAN ship patches for 100 bucks each, and I can get my lovely wife who is a Navy type to get them for me for 25 cents each, says a bit for his knowledge!
    The Sydney mob are very good, and their militaria guy is very knowledgeable and a nice bloke, but I'd steer clear of ballarat personaly....

    I have no problems with IS wright in Sydney, all the stuff I have bought from there has been good, though he did have a SD SS M42 that was a little dodgy....I have a SD M35 Heer from the Ballaratt mob, I bought it at the Melbourne fair 4 years ago, before I heard there views, but it checked out ok, but that was 1300 bucks!

    I missed the opportunity to get a SD heer Afrika Korps lid from an antiques store on the mornington peninsula, it sat there for a year, then when I bought a Italian flag captured at Tobruk, by the store owners father, he mentioned he had just old the lid, which his father bought back from Tobruk with the flag!!!!! He even had a pic with his dad holding the helmet in Tobruk!!! Talk about provenance
    Wow! i wonder who has that helmet now
