40 Pattern Battledress Trousers, 1943, namedMid war type with brown exposed buttons and two piece chrome concealed buttons, they have also had extra material added to the lower leg to give them a slightly flared appearance as was the fashion. WD stamps with ‘N’ for 1943 and also with the soldier’s name and number in indelible pencil on the waistband, ‘ KELSALL A. 11000165’. Good overall condition but a little grubby, a couple of light coloured marks and a slight tear to the bottom of the right leg, although there doesn’t appear to be any moth damage.

All insignia has been attached with the same blanket stitching. Maker label inside and feint WD stamp with ‘N’ for 1943 and size 7. Lining material has a scrubbed appearance and overall the jacket has the look of an everyday BD, not best or walking out. Medal ribbons for Italy and France & Germany stars. This unit was part of 2nd Parachute Brigade and took part in operations in Italy, Southern France and Greece. Good used condition but numerous small moth holes, some to insignia, slight colour differences between left and right sleeve, probably from sunlight but overall the jacket still displays well.

Border Regiment, Military Cross, PalestineA pre-war style Service Dress tunic with buttons for the Border Regiment and Lt.Col rank insignia, holes to cuffs show the owner was previously a Warrant Officer. With some research from various sources the unique medal ribbon grouping shows that this uniform belonged to B.J. McAuley who served with the regiment from WW1 onwards. As WO2(RSM) with the first battalion he was awarded the Military Cross for actions in Palestine in 1938. Commissioned as a Lieutenant(QM) in 1940 he rose through the rank ending up as Lt. Colonel, having served in North Africa and Italy. Very good used condition, some research included.
