    Cheers mate I got it for the bargain price of $80 about 3 years ago Worst bit is my mate used to own his named officers peaked cap and he sold it a week before I picked this up It wasnt until I showed him this he recognised the name ...damn! Im hoping to reunite them eventually.

    Your Tassie stuff wouldnt happen to be marked T22 would it?

    Cheers Luke.

    G'day Luke

    No it's T55 and a Pair of Wool service trousers.
    And 80 bucks - very nicely priced. Good luck on the reunification as I bet he will be asking for a trade!
