    Nice start of a collection Michael. I started collecting RCAF years ago with a single officers tunic. I've since collected any item related to the RCAF, badges, photos, sweet heart pins, personal items such as money belts and even embroidered hankies. It all ties together for a nice display.

    May I recommend you look into the Air Diggers web site; Latest Developments. Once there, go to the RAF Collector's Forum. It's run by Chris Kanka, a collector/dealer of RAF uniforms who is very knowledgeable on many aspects of the flying units of the Britich Commonwealth, including Australia. There are others who collect RAAF on his form so you may be able to obtain assistance there as well as here.

    In regard to the photos, photo 1. top buttons are from the 60s-70s, bottom from the 50s. Photo 3 is mainly WW2 airman's cap badges 9also worn on the hat fur felt in Vietnam) with a steel one that is non voided on the lower right, the G brevets would be from the 50s bottom and 60s top, as both have different crowns, the WOFF cap bade would be from the 50s to the 70s. Photo 4 is unissued ID discs and a post 53 FLTSGT crown. Photo 7 are WOFF epaulet slides with RAAF & eagle from the 50s + 60s, look like collar studs at top left, the plain RAAF slides were worn by ranks of the same era, also a drab FLTSGT crown pre 53.. The black plastic buttons were worn during WW2 and up to the 70s on some dresses.
