    Default 1943 Dated canadian battle dress

    Here is a battle dress jacket I bought dated 1943 to a maker in montreal https://www.joesalter.com/category/p...le-Dress-Tunic the website I bought it from has good photos as I have not received it yet.

    With the red rank pips and voluntary service ribbon with maple leaf would this of been to an artillery man who served in New Foundland?

    Newfoundland was not part of Canada until after WW2, they served in the Royal Artillery and would have used English uniforms and equipment. They also have Newfoundland titles in place of the Canada shown on this BD.

    It appears to be missing a flash from the top of the shoulders. Red for infantry as already mentioned and canadian rather than new foundland.

    Often a good sign that a uniform item is an original, I have a few still with the cleaners tags still in them.

    Thanks everyone its a bummer the flash's are missing. Do you think there would be anyway to find out what flashes it should have? Or do you think I have an un-identifiable Infantry BD?

    unless the man wrote his name on the information tag on the inside, you will have a hard time...like next to impossible.
