Comprising: Dark blue wool over smock, this with bullion signal badge, three overseas service chevrons and to the breast the British War Medal and Victory Medal ribbons. To the underside of the rear flap and faint stamped name "C.Cade". The smock has one area of moth damage nor effecting the overall appearance. ... Collar, blue & white cotton material, this with clear name stamp. ... White Lanyard. ... Accompanied by a matching pair of period Bell Bottom Trousers, but these with a faint different name.
