WAAF Tunic and Skirt
Another item from the small WAAF collection we have in. Here the tunic jacket appears to be an original item and we believe dates to WW11 and unlike the other tunic we have listed today has not been ‘re-clocked’!.It carries a makers label, now somewhat faded, reading M.Walker Ltd, 47 Albemarle Street, London. The rest has faded away over the years. Below in white ink is B 36 and W 30 which we assume to be the bust and waist sizing. The jacket is to WW11 specification with brass Kings Crown buttons (made by Gaunt) and a brass belt buckle. The tunic shows some service wear and moth nips but generally in decent display condition. The skirts that came with it is of later manufacture and carries an MOD label stating ‘Skirt Woman's Blue-Grey 1972 Pattern’. The size is marked as 67/64/96; we have no idea what this means but it is small! It was made by Watts & stone Ltd. This again shows some service wear and like the tunic could benefit from a dry clean. Check our the other WAAF related items that came in with this set which we are also listing today.
