    Incredible! Are these just in your private collection?

    Other than the Mess Jackets these all belonged to My Great Grandfathers, William Henry Bond and David James White in addition to two Great Great Uncles , Jim Thompson and Louis Bond (KIA Wilmansrust) Our family had all our family's militaria from the 1850's thru to the second world war. Unfortunately most were lost when the Bushfires of 1949 swept thru Gippsland. These shown, survived simply because they were on loan to a historical society at the time of the fires.
