An original Second World War Officers Greatcoat dated 1941 and in good condition.
This coat was made by Maxted Ellis Ltd in April 1941 for K. A. Bull who served with the Royal Artillery throughout WW2. Both his service dress and cap are listed above.
This pattern of coat was used for many years by British Officers from the time of the Great War all the way through to the 1950s. This particular example has all the hallmarks of a WW2 period example. It is made from a heavy khaki melton wool fabric and lined with rayon. It features two flapped pockets the outside and a half belt to the rear. The coat is fitted with brass kings crown Royal Artillery buttons and two pips can be found to the shoulder and denote the rank of Lieutenant.
The coat is a smaller size which fit around a 36-38" chest depending on desired fit. When laid flat it measures -
Chest - 21"
Inside arm - 21"
Outside arm - 27"
Shoulders - 17"
Length - 50"
The coat is in very good condition for its age with only limited signs of use. There is no wear or damage that I can find and overall it displays very well indeed. It may however have small issues consummate with its age.
A nice original officers greatcoat in good condition and with a nice low rank.
