    I acquired this particular BD and a helmet in a grouping earlier last week it is dated to 1943 and stamped to the S&G Clothing Company Ltd and bares the C-/l\ mark it is attributed to the Royal Canadian Artillery 5th Light Anti Aircraft who were attached to the 5th Armoured Division along with the 17th field regiment,4th Anti Tank Regiment and the 8th Field Regiment and served with distinction in Italy starting in 1943 and again in North Western Europe in early 1945 they were mobilized on the 24th may 1940 and disbanded at wars end on the 27th of November 1945 it is sporting cloth division patches for Italy and printed canvas unit and Canada flashes it is in quite nice condition with only a few small blemishes and light soiling and one of the button holes in the back has a small rip in the material I do think it will display rather nicely though .
