    I've had this for a bunch of years as well. I have his medals and ribbons that go on the jacket but they are still packed away. For the life of me I can't remember his name. Senn or Senne comes to mind but I don't know if that is correct.

    G'day Gary

    Fantastic minty set, I'd love to see more detail of the jacket as I've never seen a South African made one, thanks for this post, it's much appreciated from my end.
    The wool looks identical to a type of wool for the Aussie four pocket wool service jacket. There is allot of variation in the wool in Aussie jackets

    cool Battledress BD, not many South African made examples about, though I have one by the same maker and it's good to see another one.
