    Hi, just won this tunic.
    It was on a RAF lot, from ebay.
    The seller claimed they belong to a Flight LT Len Chance.
    These were the only photos he had provided but she was cheap.
    All opinions are welcome.
    Cheers
    Nuno

    Hi Nuno , it looks ok to me , the officers ranks on these tropical's would be "slip on" ones on the shoulders and it has the loops at the back of the tunic to hold the waist belt. Seems to be a decent officers tunic. Leon.

    Hi, thank you both for the reply`s.
    When i get it i will post more photos. The tunic had a matching color Slouch hat, 1943 dated.
    The guy sold it individually, i failed to get it because i got overbid.

    "AAArrrghhh, that stinks Nuno!! It was only until recently that I myself found out how valuable the slouch hats are!! They really are a premium which is quite understandable as the moths have eaten most of them!! Leon.

ID:	556266Hi Rene , mine is not the five vent type and the leather sweatband is long gone , but I am informed by the "Aussie guys" that it is a 1942 transitional type used by the British REME. Leon.

    The tunic still has not arrived. Most likely it will delivered by GLS.
    I really dislike their service.
    With the postal services it took two days, with GLS it takes 2 weeks

    The tunic has arrived but its not greenish, like in the seller`s photos.
    Its a light brown, no buttons missing and no tag inside.
    Later on i will post photos of it.
    Cheers
