    It arrived and it looks fine though other than the Kings crown buttons I'm not sure how you date these, as obviously the shirt is post war IMO. There is no sign of the typical post war dress tunic labels so probably pre 53 as I thought, but when is not so clear.

    Can't complain for 10, as the dogs and buttons are worth that on their own, so a good deal I think.

    Comparing it with my 2 other SD tunics and the cut etc all looks the same.

    Hi Jerry, at that price you cannot go wrong! A bargain.

    The shirt is modern as you thought.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I was certain it was when I bought it but as it and the tie came with it for that price I was not bothered either way, but still good to have them as they display with it quite well.

    I realise you'll probably know the usual location of a dated tailors label, but just in case, have you looked in the inside pockets?

    I have looked but there is no sign of a label, which is a shame as it might have been named and I might have got a hit on it from the London Gazette.
