    Rhodesia/Zimbabwe election items..

    Nice hard to find shirts.
  6. This is a shirt from the Mexican Federal Police Special Operations Group (Grupo de Operaciones Especiales). These highly trained officers were the premier unit of the Mexican Federal Police. Even though the unit size is classified, it is said to have had roughly 87 men divided into 8 to 12 operators in various places. This unit wass highly trained to do the following things: Hostage rescue Arrest of dangerous criminals Counter-narcotics Counter-terrorism Fight organized crime Furthermore, they trained with various organizations around the world to include the French RAID, Colombian National Police, Spanish GEO, various US governmental agencies, etc. What makes these shirts so rare is several factors which include force size and the fact that these items are controlled by the Mexican government for obvious reasons. This particular shirt belonged to an Oficial (Junior Rank of Officer). Apparently, the Oficial had extensive training as the shirt has the badge of the French RAID, the Spanish GEO, and the Colombian Jungla Comando, and several other Colombian qualification tabs. Unlike other units, the GEO wore their qualifications on the right arm of their shirts and some on their right chest above the pocket. The SSP (Secretaria de la Seguridad Publica) was dissolved in 2013 and replaced by the current CNS police. In other words, this shirt was used somewhere between 2000 and 2013.
  7. The dog/horse looks to be wearing a bridle.
  8. Francois are you sure? Kim translated it as K-9 as he said that is what the initials stand for.
  9. Not a K-9 unit. This information comes from nguoi tien su. Thank you.

    JAPANESE FIELD CAP

    got a response from Japanese research site, so FYI: It's written vertically, i.e., your picture is rotated 90 degrees to the right. 號 A number that indicates the size of the cap is usually written/printed above this kanji. 昭和十六年製 Made in 1941 廣支檢定 Approved by Hiroshima Army Clothing Depot 廣(=広)支 is the abbreviation of 広島陸軍被服支廠 Hiroshima Army Clothing Depot.

    RUSSIAN WWII MEDALS?

    THERE ARE SO MANY "RUSSIAN" WWII MEDALS FLOATING AROUND OUT THERE THAT I HAVE BEEN VERY RELUCTANT TO BUY ANY, BUT THESE TWO LOOK EXCELLENT, ESPECIALLY SINCE ONE HAS THE ORIGINAL (?) DOCUMENTATION: 1. VICTORY OVER JAPAN W/ DOCUMENTATION 2. MEDAL FOR BRAVERY -- HAVEN'T PREVIOUSLY SEEN ONE WITH ENAMELED LETTERS, AND IT HAS ENGRAVED SERIAL NUMBER THOUGHTS?
