An original British Army officer's tie, dating from the Second World War.
Whilst this style of knitted tie was not the most popular style worn during WW2; this is a guaranteed wartime item as it came with a group of effects belonging to an officer who served during the war. Knitted ties were highly popular in the Great War and came back into issue with ordinary ranks at the end of the Second World War. Officers purchased all of their uniform meaning they could choose between styles, clothes and cuts.
The tie is in good condition with some signs of wear and age. There is some fraying where it has been tied many times.
Overall it displays well and would make a good addition to a British Army officer mannequin or similar.
