    I have Duffle bags anyone know if they had labels?
    No they were usually stamped with ink inside them, Although my RAAF one has a tag but its worn off

    Was taking a quick look at a Uniform and was wondering what type of jacket i had i dont thinks its Raaf but a Modified Army ?Tunic and when i was just starting to get annoyed i found A serial number written on the belt.
    Also little rivets have been added to the pocket. Also what i refer as army buttons are on the inside pocket..
    Alot of home sewing seems to have been added
    Also all the Raaf Buttons are out of alignment and held together with saftey pins.
