I wound tend to agree - modern and none military. Elaborate stitiching [machine] on a leather backing is, I think, post WWII and I'd guess a fraternal organization - Kappa Tau Kappa Fraternity...

No expert on korea but the script looks right for Korean and its certainly none of the Indian sub-continent alphabets.

Yes, some new ones there, along with a few common views. The liberated EK is nice, as is the shot of the French farm girl with the Tommy and the pictures of men cooking, relaxing and so on. Also...

To mee, it looks a lot like the camp uniforms, but I'm no expert. It also looks quite unlike ordinary civilian clothes as worn by farmers or mechanic, in my opinion. Brecht, can you share some...

Telescopes were common, as common as or more common than binoculars, I believe, in the early years of the century, so it could very well be a sporting instrument which may or may not have been used...

It looks as if the RAF was using a seven digit serial number by 1940, with the block "148xxxx - 155xxxx being used in April 1941. Further, I don't see a B prefix and the fact that the number is...

B... B... Collegiate Institute? Many Canadian high schools had cadet corps well into the 1970s and '80s. Just a thought.

Gary - the trade badge is that of a saddler/harness maker, so if original to the tunic presumably this bloke was a leather worker of some sort. One of the markings reads "I.S.R.B. (IA)" which last...

Or possibly a theatrical copy of a 'camp' uniform? Though the lining in the cap suggests that someone actually intended to wear it, so perhaps not.

Very nice work on the Matilda! One of my favourite tanks and models. My only suggestion would be to dirty it up, but perhaps that's not appropriate given that its a backdrop for the medal.

So, either highway robbery or somebody who got a deal and now wants rto profit form it or, as suggested, a 'bugger off it's not really for sale' price. I do take all sorts, don't it? :)

Rauchtran - the jacket, from what I can see, is a WWII British tunic with Polish paratrooper insignia on it.

There was a 1st Independent Parachute Brigade (Poland) which dropped at Arnhem with the...

The badge seems to depict the Maginot Line, but I don't think its French artillery, so I suspect it is a sweetheart or, more likely, a patriotic pin sold to raise money for the war effort.

My last post was written before I saw the 'sunny' pictures! The dog certainly seems to be contemporaneous with the rest of the paint job. Wonderful find! Thanks for sharing.
