SOLD

An original WW2 period British Khaki Drill tunic in a large size 42" chest.

This pattern of tunic is typical of those worn by British Officers in the Middle East and Far East. Whilst this pattern is considered to by Army these were also worn by Royal Navy officers and sometimes RAF officers amongst others. It appears to be private purchase rather than issue although it is hard to so with KD items like this.

The tunic features two buttoning breast pockets and two flapped lower pockets, epaulettes, long sleeves with a buttoning cuff and belt loops to attach a waist belt too. There is no waist belt included with this jacket but they were regularly worn either without belts or with webbing or leather belts.

The overall condition of the tunic is good with no rips, tears or other damage that I can find. It does have various watermarks which may come out with dry cleaning or similar. One of the belt loops is also missing but as there is no belt this isn't a huge issue.

The tunic is a good size 42" chest which is very hard to find these days!

Overall a nice original tunic which really looks the part, that is a good wearable size.
