    Default Warwickshire regiment complete uniform, pattern 1918? need help about it!

    Hi, I got this uniform from a man in England, the jacket, pants and the hat were together when I bought them and the seller said that he found them together in his attic; he didn't know anything about the grouping.
    The jacket looks to be a 1922 pattern but the regiment was reconstituted in 1920 in the Territorial Army so I think that after 1920 the regiment insignas were put off, but if you see the pins on my jacket you realize that they have been there for a long long time and I am sure that the pins are original to the jacket.
    After a little research I found that the 2nd battalion of 1st regiment of Warwickshire yeomanry in late 1918 was sent to the Flanders, so could this grouping been made wartime? Maybe a 1918 pattern?

    Tunic is indeed a jacket New Service (referred to as Pattern'22)
    Typical 1 dart near the collar (for a late war 1918 pattern with single dart, you need an extra stitching under the arm), and drab lining to the complete inside of the jacket.
    I can also see part of a cloth label, which wasn't into use in P1902 jackets.
    Has collar badges to an other rank, which is something that came in use after 1926.
    Breeches have got the same: drab lining instead of calico white lining.
    So definately not of great war vintage...

    The cap is later as well and an officers version I think from the chinstrap and fabric.
