    Default Denison smock, 1961...info please

    Hi All

    I have literally just bought a 1961 Denison smock in very large size with majors crowns, para wings and a pin Tavr badge pinned to the inside left Brest pocket from an antique shop in Abberystwyth whilst out delivering, I've not told er indoors yet, but I've always wanted a Denison, and it was a good price, but in used, salty, been there and all other clichés condition


    I will try and post some photos tonight when I'm home, time permitting.

    It does have a marking I'm not familiar with though, on upper arm, three
    horizontal colour bands about 7cm long, maroon top, black middle and yellow
    lower
    Can anyone tell me any more about these please

    Thanks and best wishes

    It will be a Drop Zone patch. Medical I think?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Looks like the date could be 1951. its very worn, I think its 38in chest and its not as large as I thought. Pleased to have one though, even a post war. Any info on the markngs would be greatly recieved.

    Thanks for looking.
    Best wishes

    Looks nice Reg.

    Going on the backing to the Majors crown, (dull cherry red), its medical as Ade said above.
