    These are tubes from a current issue Australian ration pack - 'Yeast Extract' is actually 'Vegemite' and used to be labelled as such until someone in ADF legal must have cottoned onto the trademark issue ...

    I recently bought an identified grouping to a Captain in MARSOC. One of the uniforms in the goruping was a modified woodland set and I found his name tape and US Marines tape in the pocket.

    Just purchased another surplussed 'old' Danish desert jacket (boo-hiss to our new MultiCams), and found no less than 12 un-used condoms in the breast pocket... Didn't know our troops were such players  Very Happy

    Not into RAF items I must say but took a gamble on an Ebay OA Tunic,no labels in the pic so at the very least it could be a 1950s one.

    Arrived today,dated 1941 and in one of the pockets were the previous owners ID tags and various bits of paperwork relating to him so a double bonus Very Happy
