An original 'Jacket, Overall, Green' clearly dating from the late 1960s and in a size 1. 

This pattern of fatigue jacket is rare to find today compared to the denim battledress jacket it was intended to replace. Made from a green coloured cotton drill, the jacket features a button front, epaulettes, angled flapped pocket to the skirt and a drawstring waist. Inside the tunic the original label is still present and is bright and legible. It states the manufacturer's name as 'J. Mandleberg & Co. Ltd' and the size as No. 1. The 1964 date is also present as is the War Department broad arrow. 

The tunic will suit someone of a 34" - 35" chest depending on desired fit and when laid flat measures - 

Chest - 20 1/2"
Inside arm - 16"
Outside arm - 23"
Shoulders - 17 1/2"
Length - 27 1/2"

The jacket is in good condition overall with some signs of wear and use. It is still very wearable but please take time to study the pictures before purchasing. 

A rare piece of British military workwear from the post-war period!
