    Default Australian tunic - Black RAAF?

    Hello all,
    I am trying to identify this style of tunic and what it was worn for.
    Australian or British make - No other tag can be seen - Quite old. I would say pre 1970 (Not sure what is going on with the highlighter name, doesn't seem to belong)
    It is black. I was sure it was blue at first and perhaps RAAF but it is black. It is in the style of RAAF tunics I have seen.
    Any help is much appreciated sorry the pics are not crash hot.

    I think this is also a private purchase. Shame that no other label can be found. Cheers

    I didn't think MTX could be private purchase. I stand to be corrected of course. Private purchase usually have tags advertising their company, not a government format label.
