Original WW2 RAF Officers Greatcoat - Issue Label

Code: 50470

SOLD

A fine example of a World War Two period RAF Officers greatcoat in good condition.

This style of greatcoat was worn by officers in the RAF from before the Second World War but was replaced immediately after with a new pattern, making this example a guaranteed wartime example.

The coat features a full waist belt and brass buckle, a functioning 3 button cuff with brass RAF buttons, RAF buttons to the front and is lined inside with rayon.

There is no label inside the coat but the coat but a clear outline of where an issue label was previously. Whilst the label is no longer with the coat this outline means it is without a doubt a rare example of an officers issue item, rather than the more common private purchase examples usually seen on the market.

A pair of original shoulder boards come with this greatcoat with the rank of Fight Lieutenant attached and the correct brass kings crown buttons.

The overall condition of the coat is very good with no damage or signs of moth. There are however various stains on the coat; in particular to the bottom of the skirt and near one of the shoulder boards at the top. These may come out with dry cleaning or similar.

The coat is a small size and will fit around a 36" chest.

This greatcoat is ideal for somebody who is looking for an authentic Wartime example rather than the much more common post-war examples seen on the market.
