Battledress Royal Winnipeg Rifles 1944

Very hard to find battledress tunic of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles – 3rd Canadian Infantry Division. The tunic is in good used condition, shows normal traces of usage, a few minor moth nips. The tunic bears embroidered shoulder titles and printed division patches with three years of service chevrons and the ribbonbar for the France & Germany Star. Maker marked by Top Top Tailors, Toronto and dated 1944 with size 4. The Royal Winnipeg Rifles took part in the first wave on D-Day June 6 1944.
Very interesting regiment.

Certainly one of the most difficult to find of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division!
