    Unfortunate about the certificate. Examples such as this have taught me to purchase the item and never the "fluff" that comes with it. For what it's worth, you have an iconic jacket there!

    They are nice jackets, Rene.

    Check those colonel pins. They look kinda 'new', but I could
    be wrong. Anything stamped on the back of them ?
    Regards,

    I went to the shop today and took a few pics of the bibs/pants. They are Type B-1. The threads gave up the ghost on one leg as you can see. Matching condition to your jacket, it looks like. Do you know if these pants match your jacket or does the Type have to be the same? Your jacket is Type A and these are B.

    G'day Green and thanks
    This pair is a ground crew (mechanics) pair and pairs up with a D1 jacket. I have a pair of B1 trousers. A3 trousers are a match with a B3 jacket

    Haven't seen an A1 pair before looks very similar to an A6 patt that would match up with a B3
