Original WW2 Royal Navy Ratings 'Jumper, Serge'
An original Early Second World War Royal Navy Ratings 'Jumper, Serge'.
This jumper features a single interior pocket which fastens with a zinc button. The cuffs are the double buttoning type with indigo cotton lining rather than the plain cuff used on austerity jumpers. The collar is of double thickness so again not of an austerity pattern.
The original owner has added his name to the interior which reads 'A. Kettle'.
The jumper is a smaller size and when laid flat measures -
Chest - 20"
Inside arm - 21"
Outside arm - 24"
Length - 26 1/2"
Shoulders - 16 1/4"
The jumper is in well worn condition with plenty of signs of wear and use. There are large holes to each armpit and some period repairs. This has been reflected in the price but please take time to study the pictures.
An original example with plenty of authentic wear to it!
Mid 20th Century, WW2
