    Default Cold Sunday fleamarket Canadian Mackinaw ?

    I found this canadian 1952 jacket in a flea market whilst getting out of the wind,a trawl round the internet describes it a shawl collard mackinaw,naval coat and despatch riders coat,any idea of correct description ? It will suit driving my jeep as its warm as toast.

    What kind of material is it made from mate?...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Only a guess but i think i'd shy away from the Dispatch rider idea, i'd have thought they'd be a rubberised waterproof material!..

    I have moved this thread over the the Western Allies forum in the hope it will get more views.

    Cheers, Ade.
