Just compiled this from everything Ive learned over many years,and in a few instances Ive stuck my neck out and made a guess at what was probably,but not neccesarily,worn at each engagement ,ie, suits worn during the preceding/following tours etc. So I need someone out there to correct the info Ive got wrong.Im sure there are MANY suits Ive left out.... :? :?
