Complete with brass General Service buttons and brass “T/ASC/ W.RIDING” brass shoulder titles. To each sleeve Corporal chevrons (not perfect match, which indicates a working tunic) and to the right cuff two blue overseas chevrons. The interior with white lining and correct WD issue stamp and inspection stamp “M”, also retaining part of the original paper label. The interior also with pencil name Eliott and also “NE”. The tunic is accompanied by an old card giving details of the original owner. Tunic in very good condition one or two small moth nips.
