    I saw this interesting WW I group on ebay and thought other forum members would like to see it as well:

    "This is an awesome and extremely rare display of one soldiers WW1 service. The soldier was "1015104 Pte. Edward Spiers Matthews". He served with the following units : "72nd Battalion / Seaforth Highlanders" and "231st Battalion / Seaforth Highlanders" as well as the "3rd Motor transport Company" and the "3rd ASP / Ammunition Sub Park / CASC / Canadian Army Service Corps". Pte Matthews cut out a piece of his WW1 tunic and put together an amazing display including some super rare pairs of cloth flashes. The dispaly consists of the following items :

    1. CASC Cap badge / pair of Collar badges / pair of Shoulder Titles.

    2. 3 ASP Cap badge / pair of collar badges / super rare matching pair of cloth flashes

    3. 3rd Motor Transport pair of collars / Super rare pair of matching cloth flashes

    4. 72nd Btn shoulder title
