About this item
An original 1951 Dated Royal Air Force Ordinary Airman's Tunic in a size No 7.
Whilst this tunic is dated 1951, it is identical to those worn throughout the Second World War by all RAF airmen up to the rank of Flight Sergeant as both a working dress and a walking out uniform.
This particular example features brass King's crown RAF buttons and post war insignia is fitted to the arms including leading aircraftman rank.
Inside the jacket retains its original issue label which states the size as 35-36" chest. Below this is the 1951 date and the War Department broad arrow.
The tunic is in good condition for its age and overall displays well. There are some signs of wear and use but no serious damage or flaws aside from a small hole to the badge on the right sleeve which is illustrated in picture 6. Please take time to study the pictures before purchasing as this is a vintage item with small issues commensurate with age.
This could suit a reenactor or collector well and will make a good stand-in for a war dated example.
