    My guess is that he was either an officer or a Q in the PDF. Christ he even has a ranger beret. Might have even been in the wing.

    There are lots of genuine collecters of militaria out there who trade this stuff amongst each other. Many of them then go on to display their collection at defence forces events. The Military authorities allow this.
    Its only when the stuff gets into the wrong hands that the questions get asked.

    Its a senior NCO from Some S and T units private collection that some body has put up for sale.

    Look at the rank and unit markings..fairly specialised. The Baseball cap is a hoax given that its in French type DPM.

    Pity the vendor didn't leave the name tag on the shirt!

    Justgoes to show when I retire I won't even get a good weekends drinking from flogging my kit on eBay.

    You would probably have the sh*te kicked out of you for wearing a wing beret in, and yes he did just get them made up.

    Thats bollocks....have a look at the operational ranger wing vehicles...they carry no plates.

    DF vehicles are neither taxed or insured and people travelling in them are not subject to seat belt law.
    This kit was PDF issue ..check out the sevice medal..its the PDF one.

    OK here’s the really disturbing thing about this sale!!!

    Click on this link: http://cgi.ebay.ie/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...537265761&rd=1
    Ok so we all know this hat is for sale……BUT!!!!

    Next to History you will see that there are 3 bids (so far), so click on this link
    http://offer.ebay.ie/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...tem=6537265761

    And we see the names of the bidders!!

    OK So………but one of the bidder’s calls him/her self fenian24

    Right….am……..so……

    Well if we click on the link 10 to the right of fenian24’s name it will show the list of items that Mr Fenian24 (and I’m presuming that it is a Mr) has bought……and if you care to follow the links to see the items Mr Ferian24 has bought it’s quiet disturbing particularly from a Security Viewpoint!!!

    Go to ebay.com and search Irish Army under all catagories, this guy has a flash for nearly every battalion up, one for the DFTC and the Southern Brigade and the No1 tunic(minus buttons)
