Wartime Royal Engineers bomb disposal B/D uniform.
This is an unusual R.E. Major's private purchase, tailored Battle Dress Blouse & Trousers.
The blouse is similar to the standard issue 1940 pattern, but with a tailored open neck (favoured by officers) and a burgundy coloured cotton fitted lining, with inside pocket.
The lining extends to the sleeve cuffs which also show signs of wear on the edge (see photo).
Embroidered Royal Engineers shoulder titles and epaulette Majors crowns.
On the left sleeve is a very nice printed bomb disposal badge.
The trousers have the standard large buttoned down pocket on the front of the left leg, a front right side first aid pocket, and a rear right, buttoned down pocket.
An unusual, one buttoned down belt loop on the left side and just a single button on the right with no loop.
These must have been specific requests from the officer when being made.
Inside is found the same burgundy, part lining which is also found lining most of the pockets.
Blouse = Waist 32", Chest 36", Arm 27".
Trousers = Waist 30", inside Leg 33".
Both b/d uniform parts are in a very good 'used' condition with a few moth nips here and there (see photos).
A couple of missing buttons, but spares are found in one of the pockets.
Unfortunately, it is not named.
Due to ongoing issues with European Customs, this item is NOT FOR SALE to the EU.
