    Definately not a tank suit.
    Battledress, coveralls or the ubiquitous "Pixie suit" were the order of the day for tankers depending on time of year and theatre of operations.

    Cheers Lee,
    Did some trawling on SidCot, and you do remember right This one isn't heated, so anywhere from 1918-41 so far. Going to try Nige's UV trick on the label and hit the books again.
    thanks again,
    Jim.
