    No, that bd is patched with post-war insignia. The SERVICE BATTALION strips were not worn until circa 1964.

    I agree with Bill. Not WWII vintage in any way. While some WWII battledress had collars modified in this way, this type was manufactured like this. It is the 49 pattern.

    With all of the FREE information that is readily available on the internet is it that difficult for these wannabe 'I'll buy anything WWII but have no knowledge of what I am spending my money on' collectors to conduct a basic search and LEARN something on their own? The differences between the various types of BD has been well documented over the past 30 years so the differences are not a mystery. If a person can take the time to join a forum and post a question, then they should be able to conduct the most basic to answer this type of basic question.

    Ed, I was going to let this one slide but I cannot. I must first say that I am impressed at the OP for not ripping you a new one on this and taking the high road.

    Yes there is plenty of free information available out there. HOWEVER, if you don't know what your looking at, it is damned near impossible to gain any knowledge. Case in point, me with that tanned bush hat. I looked everywhere and couldn't identify it. WWII stuff is a little different I know and understand that.

    The best way in my opinion to learn is to ask questions. Lets be honest here, None of us are experts in everything, we all have questions, sometime what seems silly to one, is not to another. If one has no clue as to what they have, how do they know the site information they are reading is correct? That 49 tunic could be identified as a late or special purpose tunic on a couple of sites, and the purchaser gets stung big-time, why? Because the information he or she got was straight up wrong. The stripes IIRC are one piece post war. Cn't remember and can't see the photos while typing this reply.

    In short Ed, I understand your frustration but please check the attitude a bit better.
