Description


H656 RARE & Superb ww2 Australian 1st Para Bn Tunic & Beret that belonged to Captain Eric Edmeades 1ST Australian Para bn who won the Military Cross while attached to Z force commando operations with Z special force .

The tunic has his name inside the sleeve at the shoulder where quite a lot of guys put their names in tunics.

The set consists of the following - the Tunic, the ww2 dated shirt, Beret with badge ,Sam brown belt & a post ww2 Military Tie.

This soldier was a real fighting man, ton of guts & tough as nails.

I have added a few random images from a book his story is told in. I hope they can be read once on the site , I couldn't get them any larger or clearer.
