    Thanks Nick. They are really hard to find. The bra's especially. I have never even seen one for sale. There are some dark green ones just with a WD broad arrow ink stamped mark which fasten up with tie tapes. But I am not fully convinced about them as they are not listed in the official scales of issue which I have.

    Cheers, Lez.

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Amazing collection,Lez! The sanitary belt...how many can still exist? I imagine those were the First thing to get flung with many a searing oath into the dust bin once the war was over! And, glad to see You back too, by the way! Now get that plaster off, hey!
