Jerry B posted a topic in Non-Combat Items of the British Empire & CommonwealthArrived today, bought from ebay. It looked a bit bright white in the sellers pics and it did concern me that it might be iffy but in the hand it is quite dirty with signs of age so I have no doubts it is all correct, circa WWII or perhaps a little after. It was originally listed with some other items with make offers which I did but I was refused by the seller. It was relisted and did not sell but after a third listing I got it for a very good price. To be honest, if it had not looked so bright in the sellers pics I would have paid his original asking price for it as I have never seen another for sale for this Division. I took pictures with two different digital cameras as one of them did the same as the sellers pics and made the white look to clean and bright to have age, whilst the newer DSLR captured the true colours much better. What makes it extra good apart from the bargain price is that my Dad served with the division pre and during WWII in their div signals unit. It needs ironing as it has some folds in it though I have now hung it so perhaps they will drop out over time.
