    It is H. Edgard & Sons. Add the "d" at the end. I have a WWII RAF Officers Greatcoat of theirs.
    Also you can add Gieves, Ltd. I also have one of their RAF Officers 1946 issue Greatcoats.

    Cheers

    Another for you.

    Do you just want issue makers or private purchase items bought by Officers from tailors?

    I would recommend you put in brackets at the side of each maker what they were known to produce.

    Cheers, Ade.
