    About this item

    An original American made British Army Bush Jacket made in herringbone twill. 

    This jacket was made in the United States of America as part of the lend-lease scheme and is often referred to as the 'War Aid' pattern. It is made from a tan khaki coloured herringbone twill material as was popular in America for military and workwear items during this period. The design follows that of other British issue bush jackets of the period featuring long sleeves, a full button front and upper and lower patch pockets. War Aid items were typically issued to men serving in Italy due to supply routes.

    The jacket is a larger size which will fit around a 40" - 42" chest depending on desired fit. When laid flat it measures - 

    Chest - 23 1/2"
    Inside arm - 20"
    Outside arm - 24 3/4"
    Shoulders - 18"
    Length - 32"

    The jacket is in good condition with various signs of age and servicewear. There are some stains to various parts of the garment as detailed in the pictures. It displays well but please study the pictures to assess the condition for yourself.

    All in all a nice original jacket from the Second World War.
