    This does look like a wonderful collection. It must have taken a great deal of time to put together. With all respect, the Canadian Scottish BD seems a little odd. Its hard to tell from the photo but the collar is unlined and it has the strip of cloth to hang it from a hook ? Isn't this a hallmark of a postwar Canadian BD ? Can we see close-ups of it in the collar area ? It would be interesting to see if the collar has the buttonhole like the P49 battledress. Can we also see a photo of any markings in that one ?

    Thanks,

    Ypres

    Hi Guys! thanks for the reactions! But I have to say that only 3 battledress of those shown in the picture are left in my collection. I'll try to make some new pics of the bd collection right at the moment.

    and yes ypres, that was a p49 battledress.
