    Hey,

    Bought this uniform about a year ago in a local surplus store for only $5.00. It is the Royal Australian regiment's one battalion (paratroop) uniform.


    It has a few holes here and there but for $5.00 i cant complain.

    Cheers-

    Darren

    Hi, glad to see some interest in this post.

    Not something i would usually buy as my main area of interest is ww2 Imperial Japanese uniforms, inert Ordnance, medals, sake cups and decantersetc etc.


    I was just having a look in a local surplus store and came across it hanging in the corner with allot of modern stuff covering most of it from veiw but i cought a glimps of the sleeve, pulled it out and saw it was only $5.00 and thought, why not?


    The Regiment came about in 1945 i beleive from soldiers of a number of divisions of the Second Australian Imperial Force, and served as part of the Australian contribution to the British Commonwealth Occupation Force in Japan.

    Cheers-

    Darren.
