An original British Army Windproof Cadet Smock in a larger size 5. 

Officially designated 'Smock Windproof Green Cadet Forces (AD), these smocks were based on the Blacks standard anorak and saw extensive use throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Made from a green coloured, tight weave cotton; this smock features a large pocket to the centre of the chest which seals with velcro, two lower patch pockets which fasten with buttons a white nylon drawstring to the waist and another to the hood. The hood features a short zip with chrome plated puller which is marked 'NZ'. Inside the anorak is a tab and button which can be fastened between the wearers legs, similar to the fish tail of the denison smock.

Inside the smock the original label is still present and is faded. The size of 5 can still be seen amongst other details. 

When laid flat the smock measures - 

Chest - 25 1/2"
Inside arm - 23 1/2"
Outside arm - 26 1/2"
Length - 34
Shoulders - 22"

The overall condition of the smock is good with some signs of wear and use. It is still very wearable with no major flaws aside from the hole pictured but please take time to study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-worn item. 

A nice example of this pattern of smock in a good size. These are quickly becoming very sought-after!
