Original Canadian Battledress of the LAKE SUPERIOR REGIMENT (Motor) which was part of the 4th Canadian Armoured Division. The tunic is in good condition with normal traces of usage, maker marked by the company S&G Clothing Co. Ltd. Dated 1943 with size 12. The tunic bears embroidered insignia and service chevrons. The tunic has an open-collar. Most probably the veteran had sewn on some '60s rank emblems for liberation days, ofcourse these has been removed. The regiment was a motorized unit, they also had many Bren Carriers. Interesting to know, they wore the khaki coloured beret but also the black coloured beret what was worn by tank crew.
Hard to find wartime battledress with originally applied insignia!
