    Some nice items there. The military hats are definately WWII. The police hat looks to be 1950's to early 60's. What is the patch on the jacket?

    Cheers

    H Robert, the blue USAF tunic is of course post war.

    The greatcoat is wartime and appears to have the economy plastic buttons. Check the pocket for a label.

    I used to have a Pro Kit in my old US collection and these are WW2 era too.

    The insignia and leggings are also fine.

    The foot powder I cannot say for sure but it could be period.

    What is the little tool for? Again it is wartime going by the property marking.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi!! Thanks for the reply.The tool if you are refering to what i think you are is a Tape dispenser, maybe bakelite?On the back it says "scotch tape" i will post that pic as well but i have not been able to find another like it. and as for the kits i have 3 left, I sold one that was opened but the other 3 i have arent opened.i will post a few more pics of other things.I do appreciate the information.

    Ade, there were about 20 guys waiting for discharge, refused to buy the Green uniform, they wanted me to join but I just wanted out... I don't think they won because of Army clothing allowance
