RAF pilot's SD tunic/trousers

RAF pilot's SD tunic/trousers

Code: U26139

RESERVED

A standard post WW2 pattern four pocket service dress tunic with a small button behind the belt.  It is fitted with a lovely padded King's crown pilot wing, Wing Commander rank lace and ribbons for the AFC, 39-45 star, Atlantic star with rosette, Africa star with rosette, defence and war medals (with M.i.D).  Overall appearance is good but the barathea cloth is a little faded.  It is peppered with a few small holes but in our opinion these do not detract much at all.  The tunic retains its original belt (now fully stitched in like wartime pattern) with cast buckle and King's crown buttons.  The lining is good but lacks a label and there are no obvious signs of removal.  Complete with a pair of matching button-fly service dress trousers.  These are in reasonable overall condtion but a little soiled and they also have quite a few small moth holes/moth trailing, notably at the groin.  The waistband has some loose stitching -  see photographs.  Please note that all moth damage is completely inactive and the uniform has been stored at minus 18 degrees for several weeks to kill any live moth, larvae and eggs that might have been present at the time of purchase.  A good wartime 'lookalike' tunic.  Stock code U26139.

Approximate sizes : Tunic - pit to pit 20", pit to cuff 18"   Trousers - waist 32/3", inside leg  30"
