Royal Sigs SD tunic

Article about: by Bond I think they changed them, as they changed the cloth titles in 44 to just Royal Signals and also I saw some dogs for sale listed as "up to 44", so I "assume" they

    Waiting for this to arrive, so these are the sellers pics. It was very cheap and said to be WWII period, though I think that without a dated label it's hard to be precise, but 30's or 40's is probably correct. I'll post some better pics when it arrives.

    Look like a nice example actually. Looking forward to the better photos :
    To my eyes it seems to have an early long-skirted cut (so 1930s - early WW2), as the opening at the back of the skirt looks really long, but it fits so badly on that torso form, it's difficult to get an idea of it

    Thanks as always for your knowledgeable posts Rob.

    I await it's arrival to see what rank it is for and if it has signs of missing dogs and titles. Then begins to hunt to replace them, though signals items are fairly common and sensibly priced.

    Thanks Ade. It should be an easy job, as long as there are no signs of any removed cloth patches, though they are not so commonly seen on SD tunics.

    Nice example. I think I almost bought this tunic myself the other day, but I have 12 sd tunics already...sd tunics seem really cheap at the moment. 20-25 seems ridiculously cheap for original war time uniform.

    Indeed, it seems incredible that you can buy a WWII officers tunic for so little, when you would struggle to buy anything WWII German for the same money, never mind how much the equivalent WWII German signals officers tunic would cost you.

    Good for those of us who wish to collect such things, you get a lot of history for you money.

    It was only a few months ago I was fighting others to buy similar tunics for 50-60, Maybe the lack of money everywhere effected prices. Still, good news for collectors. a few weeks ago I bought a nice 44' dated economy patern tunic for 20 it just needs some buttons and collar badges.

    Very nice and a real bargain at that price.

    I assume it is just a blip and prices will return to the higher rate. I suppose it also depends on the unit, with the corps not so collectable.
