An original 1948 dated RAF Ordinary Airman's Tunic in a size No.10 and complete with its original waist belt.
Whilst this tunic is dated 1948 it is identical to those worn throughout the Second World War by all RAF airmen up to the rank of Flight Sergeant as both a working dress and a walking out uniform.
This particular example features brass Kings crown RAF buttons and early WW2 period embroidered eagle badges to the top of each sleeve. Below these are wartime economy pattern Leading Aircraftman badges
Inside the jacket retains its original issue label which states the size as No.10 which will fit someone of around a 36-37" chest and 33" waist. The manufacturers name is stated as 'H. Edgard & Sons, Ltd' below which is the 1948 date and the War Department broad arrow.
The tunic is in good condition as can be seen in the pictures with only limited signs of wear and use. This is a vintage item however and may have small issues consummate with age.
The tunic comes complete with its original waist belt which fastens with the correct pattern of brass buckle.
All in all a nice original tunic complete with original wartime insignia. Ideal for the collector and re-enactor alike!
