A Blue Patrol tunic recently came into my hands, inside one of the pockets was a cloth tailor's label with the following typed on it
The rank insignia is for a Lieutenant Colonel, but I can see where there were three 'pips' on the epaulettes at one time.
He had the following awards by the end of his Service..... Assuming that he didn't get a new tunic made
Member of the British Empire
Burma Star (with Bar, so according to my research probably awarded the Pacific Star)
War Medal 1939-1945.
I've only got limited photos at this time as its away being cleaned and treated for moths.
