    G'day Erik
    Nice set and 2 makers I don't have! The later dated garments would have been used mostly at home but your 40 dated trousers could have been issued for Greece, Nth Africa, Middle East, Crete etc.. look up your Aussie military history.
    You need 2 rising sun metal collar insignia and 2 metal AUSTRALIA shoulder titles and 2 unit patches (optional)

    Hi mate, great scores!! The 1940 dated trousers are especially nice having the manufactures name instead of the post 1942 factory codes, I take it your second 1944 dated tunic is different from the one pictured and has internal bottom pockets opposed to the patch type on the one pictured?
    Also I might be able to help you out with the patches and badges you need, let me know and I will see what I still have spare.

    Cheers, Luke

    Hi again mate, I will get back to you shortly regarding the PM. In the mean time heres a few pictures of original tunics with insignia, theyre not mine they are from the AWM's collection but I thought they would be good to show you as examples of how the insignia was worn. I will try to get some pics up of mine shortly so you can see the details a bit better as well.

    First up is a tunic for a sergeant in the 2/3rd infantry battalion

    Second pic is a corpral of the 2/3rd pioneer battalion

    And thirdly a Tunic to a corpral in the 2/4th Light Anti Aircraft regiment, it also has miniatures for one of the 9th division artillery units, a drivers trade badge 4 years overseas service stripes and a chest full of ribbons for service in ww1 and ww2
