    Fantastic. A rare bit of kit, I'm sure. I would love to have this in my collection.

    I am a fan of items that are rich in history.

    When I was younger, I remember seeing these overcoats hanging on the racks in Goodwill....kids would buy them for 2 bucks and wear them as winter coats(which they were awesome for). William

    What a fantastic display item, really nice! My stepfather was Sargeant in the British army in north Africa at a POW camp that housed German POW's and he always said that the Germans there wore British jackets with POW stitched on the back in big letters. It's a great piece Rob, I would be pleased to have that mate, good score!

    Thanks for the interest guys . OB - i was lucky to get at 100 a few years back. The seller was toying with the idea of scraping off the paint ! Its really only recently that interest in POW kit has taken off. Maybe next will be recycled military kit for the Austerity period after 1945 ?
