    Lovely BD Blouse, not sure its Indian though. The lining looks too good a quality and I would expect to see a round acceptance stamp on it as well. The buttons are unusual though. If you are interested, this is my Indian Made BD Blouse for comparrison: https://hatchfive.wordpress.com/2015...edress-blouse/

    The style of the buttons is similar, but they look a little bigger than the ones on mine. I wonder if the buttons have been replaced by the original owner at some point. I am surprised there are no stamps inside considering how good the condition of the jacket is- could it be a private purchase example? I am just thinking that with the senior NCO rank, high quality, unusual buttons and lack of any sort of British/Indian etc. acceptance marks it could be a possibility

    the rubber shoulder straps buttons denote it a an Australian Made BD blouse, as is often the case of Indian formations: lovely BD blouse, by the way, only I am not at all sure that the Somerset Light Infantry had served with the 8th Indian Division during WWII...
