RAF War Service Dress BD blouse: whats this worth

Article about: The post war items are collectable but worth much less than the wartime dated blouse. Given the rank is the same on the service dress and the BD's, I suspect these all belonged to one man? C

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    Around 75 and a bit more for the insignia.

    "LAC" is the rank and would stand for "Leading Aircraft Man".

    Cheers, Ade.

    RAF Other Airmans Greatcoat. Value, not sure, but at least 25 to 30. Maybe more. You need to do a search for yourself.

    If you are planning on selling these, do not have them cleaned.

    Cheers, Ade.

    "Jacket, Other Airman", this is the standard service dress jacket worn by the RAF.

    This is the post war version of the BD. As per the label "War Service Dress, New Pattern". You will see this has a different style of collar etc.

    What is the date on the label?
