    A recent garage sale find ...

    Post by rolleye on Tue Mar 19, 2013 6:31 pm

    Not a big poster but I do come by and lurk once in a while.

    I recently went to a poorly times garage sale of sorts - it was blowing snow and about -15C. I originaly went because there was to be a medal - turned out to be a bronze cross - and a number of cloth patches. When I got there the medal and badges were gone but the people hosting the sale told me of a groups of prints of soldiers in different uniforms. Turns out they are images of PPCLI soldiers in different types of dress. It looks like the uniforms from different eras, with some officers and some enlisted men and one of the PPCLI flag. To make a long story short we struck a deal and I bought all 10 of them.

    I'm not sure how to describe them so I will try and post them so they appear here. All - except the flag , are signed by what looks like R. Morrison and dated '80. The 8 black framed ones are approx 11X14 and the other 2 are approx 12x15.

    Sorry for the poor quality images - and the sideways ones :) - as there was glare from the pictures glass but they should be mostly visible.







    I wonder if anyone has seen these before or has any information on Mr. Morrison ? I am pretty sure they are prints but alll in all they are pretty good quality - an interesting find.

    I believe they were commissioned for the 75th Anniversary of the Regiment in 1989.

    Don't worry about being a lurker. I have to admit, I was a lurker too but I got caught and they made a mod Very Happy

    I think you made a heck of a score there. The last time I was a garage sale here in Montreal, the crazy bugger tried to sell me a garage.
