    Hi Jim, the link does not work: give me the item number.

    I have bought from him at shows.

    Cheers, Ade.

    No good: this is an Officers quality example.

    Basic cut is the same as Other Ranks.

    I can seem to get the letters writing any bigger . i can read it on the scan but when uploaded onto photobucket it resizes it small

    I have just bought a picture of his headstone in the Argenta Gap War Cemetary which will be nice to have alongside his medals and pics

    Nice pics, although it would be nice to see them bigger. The group one is interesting, looks like half of them are either in PT kit or have just come from swimming. The big pic is a classic 1940s 'film star' pose

    The letter makes you think. I wonder how many of these letters he had to write?

    Do you still want me to do some pics of hose tops, puttees, gaiters and socks?
