    Hi Rene,

    I was hoping you'd pop in, wanted to get some comments from my Aussie friends. For what ever reason, I was the only bidder and the seller had a low opening bid; hence I stold this BD. What, if anything, can you tell me about this style of BD? I had to do some searching to check it's authenticity before I bid.

    I was surprised to see no one else bid on it and yeah, it was a steal. I will have to wait until it arrives, but based on the photos it looks like it could possibly be unissued.

    Thanks Leon. Though I mainly collect RCAF, this BD will make a fine addition to my collection.

    That's a nice BD blouse Rene, and I like the Australian insignia. Was the national title worn by both Other Ranks and Officers?
