    Default Australian sporran ww2 ?

    Hi all bought this aussie sporran . It is named on the back I can't see a service number though . H. McIvor 27th battalion D (S) Company . I guessing the 27th battalion refers to the 27th Battalion South Australian Scottish regiment . I'v checked the Australian service records database and found nothing . I'v checked out info on the 27th battalion and they appear to have there own regimental sporran badge .Not like the chromed rising sun that this one has. any thoughts anyone ?

    If it is named in ball point pen then unlikely to be WWII naming.
    Nice piece though!

    I cant find his name in WW2 nominal roll or AWM Websites either .

    It could be interwar BN association type thing......the Australian Army was really only militia type units between the wars, the RSL was formed and each AIF Bn would have had an association, and would have marched on ANZAC days......me personally, I get the feeling the 27th, with its Scottish links, may have had their own association band, or was a form of ceremonial dress they marched on ANZAC day or rememberance day in their kilts.....they would have worn their colour patch on their uniforms, and used the rising sun on their sporan

    Found an image!
    NLA Trove website. Search newspapers for The News (Adelaide) 6th May 1953. Front page celebrating the return of a Korea POW shows the sporran.
