Here is my first tunic into the collection. Have wanted one for awhile and its surprising how much they seem to go for. Finally got the style I was wanting for a decent price and it arrived yesterday afternoon
Its a 1943, 4 pocket wool service tunic. I was a little worried it was going to be the later 43 version with the internal bottom pockets but was happy its in the earlier configuration. Manufacturer is S.146. Its a small size but looks unissued, even has the size tag still attached
Now the fun part starts, putting it together. I am looking for buttons, shoulder titles, and collar badges. Also would love a slouch hat but I know its gonna be harder to get.
I wanting to put it together as a 2/11th West Australian Battalion, my wife's granddad served with them during WW2 and was a POW in Germany,so anyone with anything from them would be great (I know I am pushing my luck).
Cheers guys, will keep this thread updated with progress.
