27) An original WW2 era RN double breasted jacket, strangely this has no sleeve rank and no sign of ever having had but does have Kings crown officers buttons so was clearly an officers. It is in good order but dusty and in need of a brush down, it has a few very minor moth surface marks in places but nothing that shows, it is darker blue/black than looks in the photos and is the usual colour. The buttons have at some point been painted black much of which has now worn off over time. The inside is in nice order. the inside breast pocket once had a label which has long since gone so impossible to accurately date to 1930s or early post WW2? It is clearly pre 1952 due to the KC buttons.
Measurements are shoulder to shoulder 16 inches, shoulder to cuff 23 ½ inches, armpit to armpit 20 inches, total length collar to hem 29 inches.
