Original Royal Navy 'Collar, Blue Jean'

Original Royal Navy 'Collar, Blue Jean'

Code: 52103


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 owner's name 'A. Kettle'.

There are some signs of age and wear but overall the collar displays well. It has been nicely sun faded which was a popular look for sailors as it showed they had seen long service.

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