A khaki drill (KD) bush jacket to a Lieutenant
The visor hat. This did not come with the tunic but is appropriate for an officer. It denotes the right kind of field crush and as seen by the folds of the crown, that badge has been there for a long time.
An SAAF Lieutenant somewhere out in the desert. He is wearing a KD jacket with a scarf to keep the neck from chafing and the SAAF army visor cap with the Air Force badge. (Unlike the RAF, the SAAF maintained Army-style uniforms and ranks.)
The bush jacket is often pictured worn without a shirt or tie and was made in many forms - both short and long sleeved. The main point was to keep things light and cool in the hot tropics.

The SAAF wing
with the crown for being a member of the commonwealth and the crest denoting the four regions of the Union of South Africa. The wing is sewn onto fabric with a pin catch inside as opposed to sewn on. This was so it could be removed easily for washing.
The marks of the SAAF. The pilot wing denoting flight certified. The collar 'dogs' (badges) in bronze for the SAAF. The two rank 'pips' for Lieutenant and the red-force tabs.

Personnel wearing this colour were volunteers for service outside of South Africa. There were also blue-force tabs for those who chose to serve within South Africa but not outside its borders. Very similar to Canadians who refused to serve outside of Canada. (Thanks, Chris)

The rank and South Africa flash. Also attached to a seperate slip on so that it could be easily removed for washing. The Lieutenant is denoted by the two 'pips'. These could be either made out of colored metal or in this case cloth.

are made out of dark brown bakelite and are attached to the tunic with split rings so they can be remove for washing.
The collar insignia or dogs.
Made out of bronze with the SAAF mark. This is the same as the cap badge but smaller.
