    The "P" on the broad arrow is for 1943 ? Canadian or English ?

    I'm just a newbie but I would say british. If you look at the flaps on the breast pockets they are kinda rounded whereas the Canadian ones have more of a point. And the strip of materiel that runs vertical down the front of the pocket is thinner on the British jackets then on the Canadian.

    But again I'm just a newbie so I'm I could be wrong and I can't say if its real or not. I'm sure someone can give you a sure answer, but here are two pictures I've found. One is british and the other Canadian. And you'll what I mean by the pockets.

    The large one is the British and the smaller is the Canadian.

    I'm not very well versed on battle dress myself either but I think It looks ok to me, It is British see the W/|\D stamp on the inside. It is a terrible shame about the staining on it though and as Walkwolf said the buttons are modern US plastic ones, but could easily be replaced If the price was good enough and you were to buy it.

    The P over the British WD arrow mark is for 1941, but only means it was accepted into British service in that year, not when or where it was made. It looks ok but the upside down pictures when you click on them is a bit weird and makes it difficult to look at it properly. It looks a bit greener in colour than I am used to seeing on British made BD's.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.
