    Original 1955 Pattern British Army 'Jumpers, Heavy'

    Item details

    A scarce original 1955 pattern 'Jumpers, Heavy' in good condition.

    This pattern of Jumper came into issue during the Second World War and is often referred to as the 'Commando' sweater. It went through a number of design changes in the early 1950s which resulted in this 4th pattern which was produced into the 1960s. The jumper is made from a khaki green coloured wool in a ribbed pattern and features tan coloured cotton drill elbow patches and shoulder patches. Epaulettes are fitted to each shoulder and made from the same material and the cuffs and neck opening also feature cotton drill material. A drawstring is present to the neck and green plastic buttons fasten the epaulettes.

    The jumper is a larger size and when laid flat it measures -


    Chest - 23"
    Inside arm - 20 1/4"
    Outside arm - 22 1/2"
    Shoulders - 21"
    Length - 25 1/2"

    The condition of the jumper is good for its age and it displays well. Overall it displays very well and has a bright, fresh appearance. There is a hole however to the left sleeve as shown in picture 3 and a couple more holes to the lower front as shown in picture 4. The neck cord is also frayed at one end. Please study the pictures before purchasing and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-worn item. 

    Altogether a good example of this scarce pattern of jumper which aside from a few small flaws is very fresh and displays extremely well.
