    I thought that you might think they were expensive. As I said earlier, they are not cheap anymore. Expect to pay at least 150 for one minus all the insignia.

    I used to buy them for 2.50 each back in the early 1980's.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Years ago I was in a local Goodwill resale shop, waiting for my wife to make her purchases. Walking around bored silly, I noticed a short jacket in one of the racks. That short jacket was a war dated British BD blouse, no insignia on it and it appeared to be unissued. Took it home with me for $5 US. After that I was more willing to go with the wife on her resale shop hunts. Oh, I sold that blouse to another chap for 20 times what I paid for it, using the money to further my collection.
