    I have Aussie made BD jackets from 1951, 1952, 1959 and 1981. Matthew's jacket looks the same in all details except the claret coloured lining which I have not seen before. My linings are either khaki-tan, khaki-green or jungle green. All my jackets have tags behind the chest pockets.

    No prize for guessing the Corps I collect LOL.
