17) Nice early post WW2 mess dress jacket & trousers to a Major in the Duke of Wellingtons West Riding Regiment. The jacket shows major wear to the collar and inside edges of the lapels. The main material is good but shows some minor moth nips and grazing. The rank insignia is Kings crown so pre 1952. The buttons and collar badges are all good. The trousers show no moth damage but have come apart to the inside leg seem and is some places to the outside leg seem so need some stitching (see photos).
Jacket measurements are shoulder to shoulder 17 ½ inches, shoulder to cuff 23 ½ inches, armpit to armpit 17 ½ inches, total length collar to hem down centre of the back 22 inches.
Trousers measure waist 28 inches, inside leg 31 inches 43 inches.
