    Is there a fair on this month? Anyone know?
    Was at the fair in Feb but lost the card with the dates on it.
    Go some nice unit flashes and the old French type rank markings.

    Nice one CS. I have a few bits and bobs from all over. A few Air Corps bits, 3 British cap badges, an ERU patch and then a bit of American Army and Navy items. trying to focus more on US bits at the moment. One of my favourites is the HMX-1 patch along with a CIB given by an American soldier.

    His ribbons are mounted in the wrong order of precedence:

    He was also lazy when it came to sewing his promotion stripes on, as for the medal ribbons its simple matter of flipping them around the right way.

    I covered his name tag, just to be on the safe side but I doubt he is still serving.

    Off the top of my head, Mainly European Military Medals from 1815 to the present day, but I do have odd pieces relating to countries outside of Europe. As well as a lot of Communist Insignia & medals from Romania, Hungary, etc..

    And apart from that, Some uniforms, U.S. Marines Blues, Canadian Special Forces Parade Dress, a couple of Bundeswehr Parade jackets, Romanian Military Parade jackets, camo uniforms from Australia, UK Desert, UK Woodland, Irish Camo (dont ask, wont tell :-p) German Bundes Camo, Russian Sniper suit, DDR Camo uniforms, DDR "Stasi" plain green combat suit with liner, some lizard pattern from Africa, Greece, French Lizard pattern, 2 Irish Bulls Wool Overcoats dated to the 1960's a few helmets, German 1916 Stahlhelm shell in very good condition, 2 from U.S.A., the old Vietnam tin pot with separate liner and the Kevlar version, German Kevlar, Irish Tortoise shell green and Blue UN painted,, I Irish WW2 period pudding bowl with painted W Cmd Flash, assorted Irish military buttons, the list seems endless or so my wife seems to think.

    I was at it, picked up a few bits and pieces. 3rd Armoured flash, SS Metal Eagle (replica), RIR Capbadge and Irish Guards Capbadge. Happy enough with my lot. And CS: they don't allow photos apparently. Did you get much CW?
