    Default RWF OR's scarlet home service tunic 1902 pattern

    Be haggling with the seller for weeks on this one, who wanted way too much for it and they finally agreed to sell it for a good price, not cheap but a bit below the going rate. Well they wanted top market rate for it, but I got it for about half that as that is nearer west wales prices IMO.

    Unit stamped to the 5th Bn RWF and with remains of its original paper label, though the pics are poor and the proof of the pudding will have to wait until it arrives. It still has its flash.

    Whilst rooting around today I noticed that this has a double WD arrow mark inside one of the sleeves showing it was officially withdrawn from service.

    You might also notice that I have restored the missing "T's" (for Territorial) from the shoulder straps, though I still need to find a pair of brass 5's to go with them.
