An original 1951 Dated Royal Air Force Ordinary Airman's Tunic in a size No 10.
Whilst this tunic is dated 1951, 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 King's crown RAF buttons and post war insignia is fitted to the arms including leading aircraftman rank and wireless operator trade badge.
Inside the jacket retains its original issue label which states the size as 36-37" chest and 33" waist. Below this is the 1951 date and the War Department broad arrow. The manufacturer's name of 'H. Edgard & Sons Ltd' is also present.
The tunic is in good condition for its age and overall displays well. There are some signs of wear and use but no serious damage or flaws. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing as this is a vintage item with small issues commensurate with age.
This could suit a reenactor or collector well and will make a good stand-in for a war dated example.
