    Original WW2 Ladies Civil Defence ARP 71 Tunic YORK - Size 6

    Item details

    A fantastic original Women's Civil Defence ARP 71 Tunic dating from the Second World War and in excellent condition.

    This pattern of tunic was introduced in the early part of the Second World War for women serving in the Civil Defence and was worn with either the ARP 73 Slacks or ARP 72 skirt. Made from a dark navy blue serge wool, the tunic features four front pockets; a waist belt with metal waist buckle, silver ARP buttons and a notched collar.

    The jacket comes complete with its wartime applied insignia including a Civil Defence breast badge to the left pocket. Below this is an area title which reads 'York' and a single long service chevron is fitted to the lower right sleeve. Wartime economy printed 'Warden' titles can be found to the top of each sleeve. All the badges are clearly original, period applied items. As well as this there is a yellow lanyard fitted to the left shoulder which is again clearly original to the jacket.

    Inside the tunic the original label is still present and is bright and legible. It states the size as No.6 and the maker's name of 'AKETT Limited' which is an uncommon maker.

    The tunic is in good condition for its age with only limited signs of wear and use. Overall the tunic displays very well indeed. Please take time to study the pictures and bear in mind that this is a vintage, pre-worn item which may have small issues commensurate with age. 

    This is a fantastic original tunic with a lovely set of original badges. A must have for the serious Home Front collector!
