    British uniform labels used both forms of dating, some have it as part of the manufacture of the label and others have it as an inkstamp on the label. Has it got a broad arrow stamp, as the date can often been worked out from the letter stamped above it.

    L=1945 M=1944 N=1943 O=1942 P=1941 Q=1940 R=1939, though Z can equal 1944 & 1945, though why I don't know.

    These are also seen on postwar examples, though I have yet to work out the sequence.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Seller's description and photos, not mine
    "The camouflaged windproof smock used the same camo pattern as the Denison smock. The smock is made from a light-weight cotton, has an integral hood, two pleated patch pockets, with button down scalloped flap closures, to the breasts and two patch pockets, with straight edged button down flaps, to the hips. The buttons are all brown/tan bakelite and appear to have their original stitching. Passing through a tunnel loop sewn into the front edge of the hood is a cloth adjustment tape, while a heavier tape is threaded through a tunnel loop to the waist. Sewn to the interior is a white label with the text "Smock, Windproof", "Size No. 1" and a "broad-arrow". Dated for "Feb.1944". Shows period use and wear with two tears present (one to the hood and the other to the front pocket.) Has been modified with a front zipper added."
