    Stumbled across this today
    Australian made BD Blouse.
    Attachment 325146Attachment 325147Attachment 325148

    "A very nice 1942 dated Australian made Battle Dress blouse, this was issued to a British serviceman fighting in the Far East, we had several items of his kit much of which was Australian, Canadian and Indian made and only a small amount British so a real mish mash of clothing and kit as was common in the Far East."
    Best copies of the images I could get,sorry if their on the small side but I thought this may- be useful.
    Cheers Folks
    Thanks Dave for finding those extra pics, though sadly they are very small. Can you post a link to where you found them?
    Regards,

    I thought I would throw in some pictures of my Australian BD, as used by a British Royal Army Service Corps soldier:

    It doesn't have any of it's labels, but is definitely Aussie, as I have owned a few of these BDs, and they're all identically made.

    From the same site as Dave posted earlier. Sorry, but I could not copy the images, if any one else can work out how to do and save them to the forum would be really great.

    I looked at a few BDs on here, one NZ and the others Australian, and the interiors of those made in Australia -they all have the more typical made in Aus labels- matches my example, whilst the NZ made example does not.

    I have a New Zealand Battledress badged to a British officer, if you want me to photograph markings for reference.

    NZ BDs, like Canadian ones, have ink-stamped markings, usually featuring a big N /|\ Z in an oval

    Hi Rob, if you can post pics of your NZ BD that would be appreciated - it might be good to have a pinned BD thread for ref purposes. I have seen the NZ stamp and I don't think that is what is on mine. I am convinced that mine is Australian made, features of the lining positioning and the unlined collar and the buttons are enough for me when compared to those made by other nations, though I have not looked at any Rhodesian BDs yet!

    I noticed the shoulder board buttons are a different version to mine, large and rubber but of a slightly different form.

    Another Aussie made BD, 1941 dated and with two labels, similar to mine. It's for sale at this time, but sadly beyond my budget.
