Well folks, was asleep at the switch this weekend.....thought an auction started at 2 PM, but actually was earlier.  This beauty went for a very low sum (auction house marked it as WW2)...she is a textbook 1918 pattern female Red Cross uniform...it has a 5th division patch on the sleeve....here for your referenceredcross1.jpg

Great looking grouping and not often seen. Is it possible to get some close up pictures of the collar tabs, buttons and ribbon?

Thanks

John

We have all suffered this agony at one time or another.

 

But I always find that the next find is right around the corner.  Sometimes you have to wait a bit, but there WILL be something as good when you least expect it.  In my case it will also be when I am short of cash!   :D
