RAF 1919 pattern tunic

Code: 10492


Very rare RAF 1919 pattern service dress, ordinary airman's tunic.

Worn throughout the 1920's & 30's this RAF blue serge fabric tunic would have been part of the uniform which included a peaked cap and breeches. This pattern of RAF tunic has a five button front and a high collar, also a distinctive body style and seam stitching lines, and with sleeve turn back cuffs. Four pockets and a loose waist belt. Partly lined inside with the inclusion of a small pocket on the base of the front flap.  The 1919 pattern o/a uniform can clearly be seen here in the last two photos taken of RAF 600 Squadron, at RAF Tangmere, in 1934.

Size, approximately Waist = 34", Chest = 38", Arm = 26", Back length = 30".

The inside label looks to be long gone, but there is a feint AID stamp (see photo).

Found inside one of the pockets are a pair of uncut shoulder Auxiliary badges, also a pair of arm aircraftsman badges.

In a very good condition for its age, some old darn repairs to the rear of one cuff and to the base of the front flap (see photos).
