    That's an interesting pic of the Army - style BD. Aircrew normally wore the RAF bluegrey BD, (or darker blue for RAAF) but, those 'touring' the ground battlefields, or acting as FAC's for example, often utilised Army BD, so as not to stand out, or be mistaken for German troops.

    Looked dutch to me, but the crown is not a dutch crown so I'm probably wrong.
