Hi

I got a boxed Terry Davis from ebay for $35.41 including shipping. Looks like one more with no bidding.

Good Luck

If you really want to splash the cash, there's a Douglas Kay figure on eBay at present - 400125567037 - but the starting price is 156usd (107ukp) :shock: :shock:

I have a question regarding the British Tank Coveralls / PixieSuits.
I believe they were worn over normal battledress, but was there any rank or insignia worn on them?

Ive not seen any info or pix online.

I have 2 British tank crew and I have found some sergeant strips & some RTR flashes that i got for the commander but now i am thinking that i should not fit them.

Cheers

Tim, this is where you'll find the definitive answer:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Men-Inside-Met ... R1AG3N4VBH

Dick is often on the Allied Forum on Missing Lynx, you could try putting a post there for him.

Another thing to consider is that tank crews in NW Europe, commanders in particular, became very aware of the sniper threat and conspicuous wearing of rank badges fell out of fashion.

For what it's worth, I'm just (only just) old enough to remember the pixie suits and although I never possessed one, I can't recall ever seeing any rank or formation badges on them.

Regards.

Stephen
