    Just been to Bosleys auction where i won a horizon blue greatcoat at 300 . had a fair amount of bidding for this so i was pleased to win ! Its stamped up to the 64th Ligne Regt and is dated 1918 . Its really hard to find earlier ones it seems , especially the single breasted economy type ,phased out by this time . Some holes and tears to repair as normal too !Click image for larger version.

    Great iconic coat. When you think of a WWI French soldier it is wearing a similar coat.
    Very nice buy.
