    Default Royal Navy Captain's tropical jacket

    Picked this one up this morning before work. It's a Royal Navy tropical jacket with Captains eppaulettes. The buttons are king's crown and the shoulder boards are marked 'By Appointment to His Majesty The King, Gieves Ltd'. It's named to a DJL Wood.

    Very nice tunic. These are often quiet stained (as my own example is) but this looks clean.

    Theres some brown spots on the back, but not the front so should display nicely. I have tried it on and the neck is tiddly so this one is strictly for the collection! I'm going to sit down and repair the moth holes in the eppaulettes tonight, but other than that its in very nice condition. I left a WRENS jacket there as i don't collect womens kit, but the chap only wanted 25 for a kings crown Lieutenant's jacket which I thought was a steal!

    Its worth noting that this type of tunic was in use from the 1890's right up to the 1950's, so it may not be WW2.

    Here is my one.

    Mine was orange when I received it nut after a 6 hour soak and then a hot wash it has come up white.

    The labels on mine were 1945 and 1946 but after the hot wash they are now illegible.

    I'll dig out some photos
