Jerry I shouldn't be surprised with your Welsh collection,every time we meet on forums I see something new!!

The collection you have a truly museum quality and I hope you post more on here for the benefit of the membership. Especially that RWF embroiderd flag!!

But to see more of the cloth FS and CST is a first for me and you can never get enough of the same!!

Thanks for showing and to the members when you see what Jerry has in historical Welsh military history, is one of the finest and detailed collections and hoping he will show more on here.

Always good to see that fire breathing dragon...........

Phill

]Thanks for posting Jerry.

Theatre made formation signs are always an attraction , I can see my self adding a  XIVth Army and several more variations of 8th Army.

Apologies friends just working out uploading images.

Here's a 43rd Wessex WWII era.

I do have more of Airborne, Commando and Combined operations along with Canadian Army, Corp, Divisions and Bde as well as some British and Canadian Cloth shoulder titles , will show later date.

For my American friends my main collection is US SSI.

I have more SSI that far exceeds British and Canadian FS and CST and will put together some images at a later date.

My aim is to get the overall Combined Allied effort.

Hope you enjoy.
