An original Early Second World War Royal Navy Ratings 'Jumper, Serge'.
This pattern of jumper was made between 1932 and 1941 and features a buttoning cuff and a single inner pocket. Crucially, the collar is two layers of serge which pre dates the austerity pattern introduced in 1941 which features a single layer. This single layer design was introduced as an austerity measure and stayed in force throughout the rest of WW2.
The jumper features indigo coloured cotton drill linings to the cuffs and a navy blue cotton tape to the front.
The jumper is a smaller size and when laid flat measures -
Chest - 22 1/2"
Inside arm - 21 1/2"
Outside arm - 23 1/2"
Length - 28"
Shoulders - 17 3/4"
The jumper is in reasonable condition for its age with plenty of signs of wear and use. There is noticable wear to the bottom at the front and some holes to the arms as detailed in the pictures.
An original early war example with plenty of authentic wear to it!
