Code: 53052


An original British Army 1950 Pattern Jungle Green Bush Jacket Dated 1955 and in a size No. 3.

This pattern of jacket closely follows the design of those used during the Second World War. It is made from cellular cotton, or ‘Airtex’ as it is often referred to, which is dyed green for use in the jungle. The jacket features two upper breast pockets and two lower flapped pockets to the skirt.  Chocolate brown buttons are fitted throughout. 

The original label is still present inside the jacket and is bright and legible. It bears the title of 'Jackets Bush Green 1950 Pattern' and the size as No. 3 which will fit someone of around 5’6” with a 34-36” chest and a 30-31” waist. The manufacturer's name of ‘Baxter Woodhouse & Taylor Ltd’ is present as is the 1955 date. Below these details is the War Department broad arrow marking which was applied to all British military issue clothing. A War Department acceptance stamp can be found adjacent to the label.

When laid flat the jacket measures -

Chest - 20”
Inside arm - 16”
Outside arm - 23”
Shoulders - 18"
Length - 28”

The jacket is in good condition with some signs of wear and use. It is still wearable and displays well  but please study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a pre-owned vintage item. 

A nice example with a good clear label.
