An original British Army Officers green poplin shirt dating from 1958 and made by 'Faulat'.
This shirt is typical of those made in the 1950s for officers in the British Army. It is made from a light green poplin cotton and features a neckband collar which would be worn with a matching detachable collar and plain barrel cuff which fastens with a single button. The shirt features a full button front.
The original label is still present inside the shirt and bears the maker's name of 'Faulat Belfast' along with the size of 3/15 and the War Department broad arrow marking. There is also a War Department acceptance stamp which is surmounted by the letter 'F' which denotes 1958 as the year of issue.
The shirt is a medium size but it is important to remember that they are designed to be worn reasonably loose so as to allow movement etc. It will suit a 38" chest well and when laid flat it measures -
Chest - 22 1/2"
Inside arm - 21"
Outside arm - 17 1/4"
Shoulders - 20"
Length at back - 35"
The shirt is in very good condition with only limited signs of wear and use. Please study the pictures to satisfy yourself of the condition.
