WW1 British Army 1902 Pattern Service Dress Jacket
A quite outstanding example of a British Army 1902 Pattern Service Dress Jacket, showing almost no signs of wear and completely free from moth or other damage.
A good size 38+, the Jacket has a good pair of early Corporalís stripes, a single brass wound stripe on a brass backing plate and brass Shoulder Strap Titles to the Royal Garrison Artillery.
All General Service Buttons are in place as are the two closure hooks and eyes at the neck.
Of particular note are the double seams inwards of the shoulder patches and the pleated bellows top pockets, both signs of a nice WW1 period Jacket. The two brass belt support hooks are in place.
Inside, the paper label is no longer present but a clear WD inspectorís stamp over M remains which refers to the Marylebone depot. There is a dressings pocket at the lower right side and this remains stitched closed and never opened. Both breast pocket are reinforced with long cotton strips.
It would be very difficult to upgrade this outstanding Jacket.
