An original 1950 Dated Royal Air Force Ordinary Airman's Tunic in a size No 5 and complete with its matching belt.  

Whilst this tunic is dated 1948 it is identical to those worn throughout the Second World War by all RAF airmen up to the rank of Flight Sergeant as both a working dress and a walking out uniform.

This particular example features staybrite Kings crown RAF buttons and 1950s insignia to each sleeve. This could all be changed to make it a good stand-on for a WW2 example. 

Inside the jacket retains its original issue label which states the size as No.5 which will fit someone of around a 36-37" chest. The manufacturer's name is stated as 'M. Morris & Sons, Ltd' below which is the 1950 date and the War Department broad arrow.

The tunic comes complete with its original belt. A patch of RAF blue serge has been added

Whilst not the best example RAF serge wool is relatively easy to invisibly mend meaning this could suit a collector or re-enactor who doesn't mind a bit of a project!
