About this item
An original World War Two period Royal Air Force Ordinary Airman's Tunic in good condition.
This pattern of tunic was introduced before WW2 and was worn throughout the conflict by all RAF airmen up to the rank of Flight Sergeant as both a working dress and a walking out uniform. This example is undated but the shape and position of the label along with the style of eagle badges fitted would suggest that this is quckly likely of wartime production.
The jacket features brass King's crown RAF buttons and wartime eagle badges to the top of each sleeve. Inside the jacket there is evidence of where the original label was original attached and brass belt hangers are fitted to the waist.
The tunic is a smaller size which will suit around a 36" chest depending on desired fit. When laid flat it measures -
Chest - 20"
Waist - 17"
Inside arm - 20"
Outside arm - 25 1/2"
Length - 31"
Shoulders - 16 1/2"
The tunic is in good condition for its age and overall displays well. It shows some signs of wear and use but on the whole it is a good example. 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.
