An original British Army wool V-Neck jumper dated 1951 and in good condition.
This pattern of jumper was introduced in the immediate post-war period with the pattern being unchanged from that used throughout the Second World War. The main difference between this and the earlier version is the colour, these later examples being a darker green colour.
The jumper is a machine knit made of wool. It features a V-neck and long sleeves with a cuff. Inside the jumper the original label is still present and states the manufacturer as 'F. J. & Co. Ltd' the size as 2 and bears the date of 1951.
The jumper is cut in a typically period fashion and is therefore short in the body. It features broad shoulders and high armholes. When laid flat it measures -
Chest - 18"
Inside arm - 22"
Outside arm - 23"
Shoulders - 17"
Length - 24"
The sweater is in good condition overall with some signs of wear and age. There are two repairs to the front, another to the top of the right sleeve and a small hole to the top of the left sleeve. Whilst the jumper is not in perfect condition it is still completely wearable and the flaws have been reflected in the price.
A nice original British military jumper which would make a good addition to any wardrobe.
