I'v read up a bit on these but I'm unsure about this lot what is your opinions guys? he says they are dated 1956 and assures me it is an original ???? what concerns me about the jacket is that I can not see any button holes for the top pocket's and the button up zip cover down the centre .That and the lack of wool cuff's ? I'm a little confused on some of the other threads I'v read some people say that they started making them with cuffs again after 1945 although some others state that they did not make the third pattern until 1959 which is when they bought them back in .Is this a second pattern . or just a reproduction? any help please .
