    Default RAF Regiment Tunic

    Hi all. Picked this up the other day in an antique shop. I was drawn to it first for the RAF Regiment shoulder titles and then to the fact that it only has the N. Africa star ribbon, which to me indicates a wartime as opposed to a post- war worn tunic? I had to use flash on the pics so the overall, salty condition does not really come across, however all wear appears consistent with age etc. Any opinions are appreciated. Cheers.

    It was formed in 1942, let me check our archives for you, of the top of my head more likely post war when we were in Aden.

    The shoulder title was certainly worn during the war. Introduced under AMO/466 in 1942.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the comments, Gents. The Regiment certainly saw service in N. Africa. What makes you think Aden, Ben?
