Major Tolerís Wartime Glider Pilot Regiment Service Dress Updated 16/11/2017 to include pictures of Service Dress belt Very rare Glider Pilot Regiment Officersí Service Dress to Major Toler who eventually commanded the Glider Pilot Regiment at Arnhem and was later awarded a Distinguished Flying Cross for his gallant actions. Army Air Corps buttons to front, epaulettes and to every pocket. The top button has been replaced with an RAF button but there is a spare AAC button inside the top pocket. I think this is contemporary and a nod to the closeness of the working relationship between the RAF and GPR.

Large size 13cm padded Army Pilotsí qualification badge / Glider Pilotsí wings to breast in a rare bullion configuration with khaki backing.
