Above the left breast pocket is a nice original Queens crown padded pilots wing which looks original to the tunic. The cuff features original rank braid which denotes the rank of Flying Officers.

Inside the tunic is a makers label which reads 'Burton Tailored'. Another label is situated inside the inner pocket which is a cutters tag an is dated 17.2.71.

The overall condition of the tunic is good although it does show signs of wear and has a small hole in one the sleeves as shown in the pictures.

All together a nice Jet Age period piece of RAF uniform.
