An original austerity pattern Able Seaman's jumper dating from the Second World War period. 

This jumper is made from a very dark blue coloured wool serge and features two interior pockets.  It also has the single layer collar which was introduced as an austerity measure in 1941 and a two button cuff. The original indigo blue coloured cotton tapes are still present to the front and there is evidence of where the original owner marked his name under the collar flap.

When laid flat the jumper measures measures - 

Chest - 19 1/2"
Inside arm - 20 1/4"
Outside arm - 23"
Shoulders - 16 1/4"
Length - 27 1/2""

The jumper is in good condition for its age with some signs of wear and use. It displays well with no serious flaws or damage. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that it is a vintage, pre-owned item. 

A good original austerity example.
