RAF Airgunner's Aircrew Blouse
'Suits, Aircrew, Blouse'. Stores ref. 22c/393. Size 7 (Ht. 5'7" - 5'8", Ch. 35 - 36", Wt. 31"). By L. Harris Ltd.,1943 dated. Standard early aircrew battledress blouse with flight sergeant rank, flat Airgunner brevet and ribbons for the 1939-45 and Aircrew Europe stars, defence and war medals. The blouse looks good and is generally very clean but there are some moth holes - most obviously to the base of the chest pockets and adjacent to the buttons - see photos. Interestingly the original owner has sewn a small 'silver' crucifix underneath the left pocket flap. The collar is also fitted with an original aircrew 'ditching' whistle. This has some loss of plating but is generally very good. The blouse label is overstamped with the later designation for these blouses 'War Service Dress Blouse'. A nice unmolested example in good used condition. Stock code U20679.
