    Hi Philip, Is there any evidence of rank stars having been sewn on? Or of metal stars having been fitted?

    I have it seen it close by, but it is said that there was so evidence of the pips being sewn on.

    Got in touch with Martin Howett, who had done some research, and he thinks the battledress is oke
