VINTAGE - 38-40" - White - RAF Flight Lieutenants Tropical Mess Dress Jacket

£50.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

VINTAGE - 38-40" - White - RAF Flight Lieutenants Tropical Mess Dress Jacket

This jacket is not in the cleanest condition, but it will still be much loved by any collector of British Militaria and Uniforms. It feature a peaked lapel and is double breasted in style, with gold buttons embossed with the RAF emblem of a crown and eagle, made by J R Gaunt of London - which suggests a date of the 1950's and on. The jacket has Air Force blue shoulder boards with the logo picked out in gold thread and velvet to the crown, and the two stripes of a Flight Lieutenant. The garment is sound in construction, but has quite a few marks - the inside of the collar is dirty, and there is some staining to each cuff. It would certainly benefit from dry cleaning. Regardless, it is a great piece of British miltary history.

Dry cleaning recommended, no wash or fabric label.
