    Hi guys I took a punt on this British army red coat and bought it. I have no idea about it, as my area of collecting is helmets. I have tried looking around on the internet but haven't even come close to finding anything like this. If anyone here could help me out I would be most grateful.

    I think its a Chelsea Pensioners coat,but the shoulder items don't belong on it.

    I also think its a Chelsea Pensioners coat but think the shoulder items have been added because he was a Royal navy vet as he has the Atlantic Star in the medal ribbons on the jacket

    It certainly is a Chelsea Pensioner's coat, the buttons confirm it, and the R.H stamp is for Royal Hospital (R.H.C - Royal Hospital Chelsea). A wonderful find!

    I didnt pay much for it having no idea of what it is really worth. I tend to buy military items and sell them on for a profit so I can buy some nice helmets for my collection my wife is really understanding about my 90 plus collection of helmets
