An original British Army officer's tie dating from the Second World War period.
Whilst this style of knitted tie was not the most popular style worn during WW2 they were still worn. I have had numerous similiar examples from wartime groupings which make this an ideal opportunity to add the correct pattern of tie to your officer's kit! 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.
Overall it displays well and would make a good addition to a British Army officer mannequin or similar.
