    Default Australlian Jacket. Military?

    Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying your sunday!

    Today we picked up this lovely looking tunic. N.S.W so i'm assuming New South Wales?

    We're not sure if it's military or the age? I can't seem to find much out about it.

    Any suggestions or info would be great.

    Thanks

    Spot on! New South Wales Police Pipe Band. Thanks Jerry, still a nice looking tunic. Looks a bit older than those shown.

    A good looking tunic and if the price was right a nice addition to any collection IMHO. Collectors of Police items would probably be very happy to add it to their collections I would think.

    Hi Jerry, not normally one to talk about prices but as i have no idea on value of this one, i paid 40. I consider this to be pretty decent for this, its nice looking and feels quality. Not the normal piece of militaria but i like it so will be keeping hold of it

    I am not up on prices for Police items and this strikes me as being somewhat of an uncommonly seen example of the genre, but 40 sounds like a good price and possible a bit of a bargain.
