    Default Aussie BD?

    Is this label from an Australian made BD blouse? If it is Australian made, can someone help on what the market price for this would be? The pics are the sellers.

    Thanks.

    Gday Jerry,
    I think Aussie made WW2 Battle Dress is not so easy to find.I've seen jacket's sell for around $200.00 AU. but these may be exceptions.
    Rene may be able to give you a more precise answer.
    Cheers mate

    Sorry Rene, but these are the only pics provided by the seller. Is the label from an Australian maker?

    Thanks.

    Thanks. So not a known Australian maker I assume or label format? Is PTY something typically seen in Australian company names, as it's not something used in Britain? I googled Brakes PTY and it lead me to Australian companies, though to do with car brakes rather than clothing.
