Original 1943 Dated British 'Smock White Camouflage' Jacket + Trousers

Code: 51539


An original wartime white snow camouflaged smock and matching trousers in good condition.

This set is the lightweight version issued in the winter of 1944 and 1945 to a variety of British units as well as some American units. Made from cotton it was designed to be worn over the standard battledress uniform and featured no pockets, its sole purpose being camouflage.

The jacket is in good condition with no signs of serious wear or use. It is quite possible it was never issued as it displays very well. Inside the original label is still present and states the size as N0.2 which will fit a 38-40" chest and up to 5' 8". 

The trousers are also in good condition. To the rear the original makers label is present and is again marked as a size No.2, matching the jacket. They were made by 'J. D. Fieldman & Co Ltd', matching the jacket. The 1944 date is present as is the War Department broad arrow marking. 

Both items are in good condiiton with only minor issues. There are some marks and the jacket has a couple of small holes to it (front and rear) as shown in the pictures. Overall it displays well. 

Altogether a nice original set with matching dates and in matching sizes. This would make a fine addition to a collection!
