    About this item

    An original British Army Officers collarless shirt dating from the Second World War made by 'Army and Navy Stores'.

    This shirt came with a set of 1940 pattern austerity battledress set which belonged to an officer who served during the Second World War. 

    This particular shirt is typical of those worn in the early part of WW2 and is essentially unchanged from those of the Great War. Made from a soft, khaki coloured wool flannel; the shirt features a half placket, or 'tunic' front. This style of shirt was popular in the first half of the 20th Century in the UK losing favour to more fitted full button front shirts in the 1950s. The shirt features a neckband style collar which is made from green cotton. 

    Inside the shirt the original label is still present which bears the makers name of 'Army & Navy Store Ltd'. The original owner has also added a name tag which reads E. Davidson.

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

    Chest - 24"
    Inside arm - 22"
    Outside arm - 24"
    Shoulders - 16 3/4"
    Collar - 15 1/2"
    Length at rear - 37"

    The shirt is in good condition for its age and is still very wearable. There are no signs of excessive wear or serious damage although there is a mark to the rear of the shoulder which is illustrated in picture 8. Overall the shirt displays well and looks to be very wearable but please study the pictures before purchasing.

    All in all a nice original British officers shirt with a great label. Ideal for the collector and re-enactor alike!
