    Period regimental shirts are very hard to find, especially in this condition. Nice example.

    Here is a navy shirt I have. It has a Toronto maker. I found a 1931 catalogue for this store online ...

    I found these when looking through a box. Of interest is the T-shirt. It is made of thin material and is amazing it has survived.
