    Default KD Bush Jacket

    This Bush Jacket came with a Wolseley (Wolseley sun Helmet 1942) picked up the other day.Unfortunately the label has gone, I thought it was post war because of the material is much finer than the others I have although it is very similar to some US War aid shorts I have but my War Aid Jacket is HBT.

    It was not made with economy in mind as it has plenty of spare material with 2 large inside pockets and large flaps covering the button rings. Buttons look pure ww2 to me and the rings are like new.

    Unfortunately I cant find my copy of Khaki Drill and Jungle Green.Is it possible this could be War Aid ?

    As far as I am aware, all the US war aid kd is hbt. As you state, the buttons are British WWII type, early war I would say with the revolving shank and rounded edges.

    No exact match for this type in Khaki Drill & Jungle Green but half of the KD items I own don't appear in there either.

    A fine circa WWII example and as it came with the pith probably circa 41-42 in date, for OR's.

    Thanks Jerry,
    I forgot to mention it looked like it had a belt attached but had been removed. All the others I have have loops.

    Roger,

    Of my three, one has loops -Scots Guards-, one has metal belt supports as seen on some SD jackets -RIASC- and one has nothing -10th Hussars.

    It's a variation of a Bush Shirt, not a jacket.

    I thought 4 pockets and a belt was a Bush Jacket.
    Is that because it has short sleeves ?

    The pockets at the bottom indicate it was a bush shirt. The terminology is confusing but consider that the lower pocket arrangement will allow this garment to be worn tucked into your trousers , and therefore worn as a shirt.

    Indeed, hard to see how you wear it with a belt as a shirt. My 50's one with the belt and 4 pockets is labelled as a Jackets, Bush

    I have to disagree with this principle.. The trousers or shorts were high waisted coming up to your belly button so I can't see how this could ever be worn tucked in. The lower two external pockets have internal pockets as well.
