    Thanks Mate, the covers are relatively easy to source, as there was a huge stock unissued, that came onto the surplus market, glad you like it Mate Very Happy

    Hello,

    Here is mine which was borrowed by a british officier from the Raf Regiment in 1991. He is retired now but I had the chance to get his plate name.
