    - I understand it was used by the British Army but that is all the information I have. If anyone is able
    to give me any further details that would be great. The buttons are a yellow/tan unlike the khaki I have seen on similar items.

    This is the last version made from 1952 up to the mid 70's.The first version was made from Sateen and had an integral hood and no top pockets...now rather rare.Yours is missing the hood.Both versions were used in the Korean war.

    Thanks for the reply. Would 20-40 be a correct estimate for re-selling ? Gil.
