Technically the Chindits were not commandos. Troops were inserted in battalion or even brigade strength behind Japanese lines and supplied by air drops. However, as they had no artillery or air...

The lining is 'oil cloth' which is normal for WWI cdn and the painted markings on it would rub off with wear, so no screaming danger signs there. The badge is a stripped down version, so could be...

I don't much like the top left crown - a very poor striking - but that doesn't mean its not a real one - maybe a war time striking and issue.

They'd be odd fakes, as they are so obviously wrong. Looks like a collection of sweetheart pins to me -issue badges made into brooches for wives and sweethearts.

I agree - early pattern, "bulled up" as walking out dress, with a replacement buckle. The issue buckle is wire, with a sliding bar to keep the strap tight - bulky and not very effective [I wore one...

I have to agree: the badge is not issue to UN troops, but a 'button' given away by someone, maybe UN personnel.

I'm finding here in Canada that many of the enlistment records do not show the middle names which appear elsewhere. I suspect in small towns and villages the multiple names help separate cousins or...

I don't believe that the plume - a major general's plume - is correct for a naval bicorne and certainly not for that rank. Perhaps the plume is added - naval bicorne's didn't have them as far as I...

I bought my first BWM from a chap who came into a shop with a cigar box full - probably 50-60. He was on his way to a jejweller to have them melted down for the silver value - about $11-12.00...

The infantry badges are a mix of British and Canadian. The 'Little Black Devils' is nice and could be an early one and the St George Cadets is quite unusual so may be valuable as well. Certainly...

Muir's was a well known tailor and one place you'd expect officers to get private purchase caps and uniforms. I think they may still be in business in the academic gown line.

I have to agree - the naming on the tang does not look stamped - not crisp enough - but that could be the photo. I'd be leary of paying very much for it myself unless its sold as a copy.

The C broad arrow was used pre-WWI and up to 1949 but I don't have a specific date foir its introduction - not as early as the Boer War, I'm pretty sure, so somewhere in that period -1902-1912.

OOpps! Sounds as if, just maybe, it was an older, rarer piece then. Or at least can be sold as 'possibly...' Still, an interesting thread and discussion. And a belated Happy Thaksgiving to all...

The uniform looks like the standard British 1902 pattern five button tunic, done in khaki drill. Likely imported from the UK for ORs and privately made for officers but not 100% sure on that.

I have the same reaction as Tora to the blade versus the scabbard - they don't seem to come from the same design tradition. Also, the blade seems, as far as I can make out, a little crude for the...
