Description

62) An original late WW2 Irish Guards officers service dress jacket. The jacket is good and pretty clean but does show some minor moth nips to the lower front which is covered when the jacket is buttoned up and a couple of very insignificant nips to the back (see photos). The lower rear hem has has 2 very neatly done period repairs which dont show to the outside at all. The rest is in nice order inside and out. All original brass Kings Crown IG buttons are in in place and good with an unusual arrangement of 8 buttons to the front closure and 4 to each cuff as well as the usual buttons to pockets and epaulettes. The original rank pips are gone but the holes are there so easily fitted. There is a medal bar to the left breast which shows that he was awarded the War medal. The inside is in good order with minor marks. The owners’ details are in place and date it to September 1945. (see photos).
Measurements are shoulder to shoulder 16 inches, shoulder to cuff 22 1/2 inches, armpit to armpit 17 inches, total length collar to hem 29 inches.
