    Default ink stamp in raf tropical tunic

    bit of a long shot, just wondered if anyone had seen a stamp of this type before ? its on the inside just below the collar but its very faint and seems to have a size, possible company (makers) name and possibly the date but i cant make it out, has been suggested it has a connection to malta,
    cheers, John.

    Hi, looks like it says: SIZE ?6
    HOWAT & CO LTD
    ????? 1941.
    That's my best guess, the bottom word may be Malta, but I cannot tell! Leon.

    I think it might be South African, but it's difficult to tell...

    many thanks both, have added a few pics but cant seem to master the art of good close ups no more markings inside, what looks like a washed out label is a pocket.

    I saw this South African made shirt online and the style of stamp does look very similar to the one in my shirt,
    cheers, John.
