A beautiful 1943 dated RAF Officers overcoat made from a Crombie material.
These coats area usually made from a thick serge but this example is interesting because it is made from a much softer material with a high pile that is similar to 'teddy bear' coats of the 1930s.
The coat was made by 'Collier & Stanley' of Manchester in 1943 for a Pilot Officer and features an original set of Pilot Officers shoulder boards, a full set of original brass Kings crown buttons and the correct brass waist buckle. Inside the neck is also a nice brass hanging chain which is original to the coat.
The greatcoat comes complete with two original rank boards mounted on each shoulder which have a single stripe which denotes pilot officer rank.
The overall condition of the greatcoat is very good as can be seen in the pictures. There are some areas which show light moth grazing, but this is only noticeable on close inspection. I have taken a close up picture to illustrate this.
The coat is a small size and will fit a 34-36" chest but no bigger.
A very complete and original greatcoat with a nice wartime date. This would be ideal for a re-enactor or collector.
