Original Royal Navy 'Collar, Blue Jean'

Original Royal Navy 'Collar, Blue Jean'

Code: 52102


An original WW2 period Royal Navy 'Collar, Blue Jean'.

This style of collar came into use with the Royal Navy during the 19th Century and remained in use through much of the 20th. This example came with a number of uniform items all dating from the 1930s and 1940s so almost certainly dates from the same period. It is made from blue jean and features the post 1941 composite tape of three white stripes. The reverse of the collar is made from blue and white cotton ticking. 

The interior features the original owners name 'A. Kettle'.

There are some signs of age and wear but overall the collar displays well. 

A nice original period item which would make a great addition to a Royal Navy collection.
