Default Early months of the 1st Commonwealth Div battle dress

I've been ver happy to find for few quids this 1947 pattern BD originally badged.
It belonged to a corporal assigned to the 29th Signal Troop.
The combination of the 29th Bde and the Commonwealth Division (early model) formation patches could be spotted during the first months of the division created on july 1951.
An other interesting detail are the Royal signal slip on instead of titles.

Unfortunately, the veteran removed the ribbons above the left pocket.

Cheers

félicitations!

A very nice BD indeed, a rather rare thing to find too from this conflict.

Always a pleasure to see an item from a war sadly all but forgotten in the UK.

Thank you for your interest.
British army in Korea has an important corner in my collection.
Unfortunately, Korea is also forgotten in France even more and more young collectors are interested in this conflict.

Cheers
