    Soldiers WWII 3rd Div Cap Badge Collection

    Post by ypres on Sat Jan 02, 2016 10:37 pm

    Hi guys,

    I found these today. The smaller pack is from the mess tin ration. Seems the original owner was trying to put together a 3rd div grouping. Cigarettes are a few brands: Players, Sweet Caps, and MacDonalds. First time I have seen unit crests on wartime cigarettes.

    All the best,

    Ypres,
