    Default Devonshire regt ww1 veteran sergeant 1922 modified 02 tunic

    Although the 22 type tunics are little regarded and command much lower prices than WW1 vintage uniforms , they are as far as i can tell rare in an originally badged up state . This example is one of my earliest pieces in my collection owning for two decades . I havnt researched the man though i think the records are available . So if any one can beat me to ID the Sergt , please do !

    Just reading through some old posts and came across this. Checked the service number printed in the trousers and came up with the following.

    Cheers, Tom

    Nice tunic. Leaving aside the monetary value, I would rather own this with the owner's history than a mint unissued wartime dated one that never left the stores.

    The biggest differences are in the lining and the label, otherwise they look very similar. These are often used by WWI re eanactors. They continued to be issued into WWII and in some circumstances post WWII was well.

    The other big difference is the price, WWI a grand, post 22 120-150.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    And double pleats under the collar for WW1. 4th pattern 02s only have one pleat. I have also noticed 4th patt 02s (22 pattern?) creeping up in price.
