    About this item

    An original RAF Air Ministry marked woolen undershirt dating from the Second World War.

    This undershirt was made specifically for the RAF and carries the Air Ministry AM and crown marking to the front. This marking was made obsolete in 1944 and replaced with the War Department broad arrow marking, making this a genuine wartime example. 

    The construction of the undershirt is typical of the period. It is constructed from an oatmeal coloured wool which is machine made. It features a round neck and three button fastening which is often referred to as 'Henley' today. The opening fastens with plastic buttons.

    The top is a large size which will suit someone of around a 44" chest. When laid flat it measures - 

    Chest - 22 1/4"
    Shoulders - 23 1/2"
    Length - 32 1/2"

    The item is in good condition with signs of wear and use. There are some marks to the sleeves as illustrated in the pictures but these look like they may well come out with careful cleaning. Please study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a pre-worn vintage item which has small issues commensurate with age. 

    A nice original example which is guaranteed to be wartime!
