Description

93) A really very nice original WW2 British military issue short length rubberised waterproof dispatch riders coat. A far less common coat to the long heavy full body version. It is in amazing condition. this type of material is renound for becoming stiff and brittle but this one is soft and supple like new and still has the rubber type smell. All material is excellent and clean. The only one minor fault is the dark brown edging stripp along the inside bottom has become a little stiff and unstuck. this could be re glued but is fine as it is. The inside is good with one slight faded area but nothing serious at all (see photos) It is maker marked and dated 1942 along with corresponding WD inspectors date code. It is a size 8 and although a British military issue item looks to have been used by the NFS. A nice item in amazing condition. all original buttons are in place and excellent.
Measurements are. shoulder to shoulder 18 1/2 inches. shoulder to cuff 25 inches. Armpit to armpit 21. total length collar to hem 36 inches.
