    All I can show is a site on rank if that is any good?

    Air Force Rank Insignia

    But what you really need is something from the 1950's showing photos of uniform and insignia in wear.

    Hi Nick,

    Yeah, i watched it for while ,and then thought , ah go for it ...might turn out to be front seam or my latest obsession M1's with that cool "S" in it....... to be honest as soon as it turned up.. out came the wet n dry , to find a heat stamp... phew i found it...

    Cost way more than i wanted to pay though!!!

    Two M1's turned up today, i will put the other on to show ya, the other's a front seam with firestone liner......again cost a bl***y fortune... oh god , my poor bank balance


    Cheers mate.

    hiya mate

    i dident watch all the way to the end so i dident see how much it went for but im sure if you remove that sponge from it & add a WW2 liner you'll easily get that money back if you were ever to sell it which if it was me i wouldent

    cant wait to see the others you have got i know were you are coming from on the cost ive had to pass up so many really nice M-1's as i just cant afford it but i do have one i managed to snap up one that might be a steal which i'll post about when it comes
