    Picked this up a couple weeks back. Dated 1960 and named to Squadron Leader Robert Forbes. Haven't done much digging on him yet, but he may have written a book about his time in WW2. Ribbons are sewn on, insignia is all 50's/60's era.

    So after 3 days home sick, I have found the Robert Forbes that wrote a book was in the RCAF after WW2 and wrote it about a former Squadron Leader of the unit he was comanding, and the OBE recipient I looked into was in a Canadian Infantry regiment. So... back to square 1.

    That uniform is a nice find - Canadian material from that time frame does not really get the attention it deserves.
