  1. Aye, yeah that does make sense. I still need to get round to watching Das Boot, I've been meaning to for a while now. Thanks again, Tom
  2. Wow, very interesting that the crews preferred our kit. Thanks again for the great information, I hope I can have that much knowledge at one point Many thanks, Tom
  3. Thanks so much again Fritz. If/when I get round to getting some more BD uniform pieces and start putting a set together I'll definitely post it up on here to make sure it's all correct etc, Many thanks, Tom,
  4. Thanks for the information Fritz, I will definitely look into getting a complete WW2 original set. It all looks very interesting, Many thanks, Tom,
  5. Cheers Fritz, I'll be looking out for some over the near future, Tom,
  6. Cheers again both of you, yeah I've got the page now . One last question what is the collctibility or rarity of this BD, I'm assuming not very but I must reiterate I know jack-all about uniforms really. But I do hope to start collecting WW2 and post war, like this BDs and uniforms as they seem cool and interesting. Tom,
  7. Thanks guys, Yeah definitely looks like the 1918 GSM. Very interesting information which I will look into further myself. By FB group I assume you mean Facebook, can you point towards this group as I can't seem to find it with a simple search. Many thanks again for all this wonderful information, Tom
  8. Cheers Fritz, Any idea of the significance of the yellow background? Does the supposed Stonehenge badge represent the unit or similar? Thanks much for your information, I'm sure someone else will be able to fill the gaps, Tom
  9. Evening all, I'm more of a helmet guy so I have not much knowledge in uniforms. I found this today for 40 quid in an antique shop. It's a Royal Army Service Corps 1955 dated 1949 pattern Battledress Blouse. It has a patch with an image of a stone that looks like it's from Stonehenge? There is also 1 crown on the epaulettes, not too sure of rankings of this period, looks like a major but I doubt it is? Also what medals do the ribbons correspond to? I stupidly through the tag that was with it in the shop but it didn't have that much info. All I remember was that it mentioned Salisbury and Africa?? Any info on what the RASC was doing around this time would be much appreciated as there doesn't seem to be too much online about them although I'll do some more research now. I've no clue about all this so any help is much appreciated as you lot know your stuff. Many thanks, Tom
  10. Hi Kenny, I asked some people on another forum and they said that: If the helmet has non standard khaki paint, a 1937/1938 dated liner, MKI chinstrap fitting and strap, plus a division flash to a known BEF unit , then it has a chance.
  11. Just a general enquiry, How do you tell if a Brodie Mk.1* was used by the British Expeditionary Force. I.E. Was there any special markings? What colour were they (one of he various military greens or even brown?)? Is there a certain manufacturer or date? Many Thanks, Tom
  12. Yeah, it’s the first time I’ve ever seen flashes on a Civil Defence aswell. Must be un-official.
  13. Yeah, that poster is my best friend when it comes to identification. But I can not find anything about the flashes anywhere. The black R on White background is not very common either, I don’t think.
