    I think It might be a good idea to list what the item is and If Its RAAF Army or RAN as well as It would be interesting to see what each company made

    Hey Luke

    I'd ask for all- I believe there was a publication on these, but I cannot comfirm this!
    As you might know the gov't was very efficent on removing records on this type of question!!!

    Ive never heard of any list but it could well exist, even the Australian War Memorial doesnt know who the manufacturers were. You would think there would have to be a record somewhere, the problem would be finding it
