    good finds

    Got these off Kijiji yesterday. Uniform, ww2 hat newer hat, RMC hat, legion beret, patch, armband, epuallettes, buttons, reg size and miniature medals. Plus paperwork for two men they belonged to. At $50 it was a steal. Cheers Brian

    It's nice that you have the CD in the medal set, now you can put a name to them. Well done.

    Just looking over the paperwork now. Interesting that the one fellow was in 7 medium battery RCA in 1940 then transferred to the RCNVR. I have all his service papers from the navy and signal history sheet. The medal set is to a different person. No records for him although the white naval hat has his name penned in. I guess the older hat and uniform could have belonged to either one. Cheers Brian

    Great buy! You can't complain about that price for what you got. Amazing.

    I do like that long service set for sure. The Corps of Commissionaires Long Service medal, should also be named. Very nice pick.
