    Here are the two I have now:

    Belgium (and luxembourg):



    Commonwealth Division (japan-made):



    Enjoy!

    Bevo weave = akin to HBT (VV shapes) material?

    This is canvas - the backing piece is also (white) canvas, but a thicker weave.

    Could you post pictures of yours? I didn't know the Australians made a seperate type!
