    Thanks for the welcome, handle's Lorry, like a truck!. I do have a passion for badges & uniforms but don't usually get into forums, however happy to be welcomed thank you.

    2 Quick questions, can you tell me how I get a picture into the left-hand margin like you guys have. (the little one) Next how do I up-load any of my pictures and is it easy. Years back I used a site called Webshots, and had hundreds of pictures of military stuff I did on my graphics SW for anybody who fancied then as screensavers. I'd appreciate any help.

    Welcome aboard Lorry! Nice to have your input. I've collected Rhodie stuff (when I can pick it up) for years. I know a couple of Aussie expats who served with the Rhodies, one with Selous Scouts and one with RLI. I might have a couple of questions later on ...

    There were no smoke made in Rhodesian cammo but a good bush jacket will cost you best part of 200.00

    I'm afraid that the bush jackets are getting more expensive and the larger sizes command the higher end of the price range.

    Sorry to throw a spanner in the works but in my honest opinion the SAS wing on that Rhodesian cammo shirt is a dead ringer for the one illustrated as number 324 in the reference book ANZAC elite. Listed as Wings. Collectors market copy. I have considered it as such for many years.
    Regards,
    Del.

    Quite right ripcord. My apologies !
    Been collecting Army Air Corps/Glider Pilot Regiment and SAS insignia for 30+ years. I am an avid collector but not an expert by any means.

    Thanks for the scans and images.

    Looks like you may have cleared up what the wings in question are.   I can only wonder why they were sown onto that shirt.

    All I can offer is another photo of the wings .  I received the shirt as pictured may years ago and have not fooled with it, nor will I..
