Very nice condition Post War Second pattern Denison Smock. Corporal stripes patch on right sleeve. Some minor ware on the Newey snaps and some holes on the tale as seen in the pictures. But otherwise in great shape. Tag is faded but I think reads.
(Broad arrow stamp) with additional ink stamp: W(broad arrow)D 762 under the I. Great wool cuffs and wool neck sweat band. The Denison smock remained on inventories in Commonwealth and other militaries after the Second World War, and was popular with troops in Korea.
Changed little from the wartime issue. A full length brass zip had become standard - with no cloth flap to cover it - and the ever-popular knitted cuffs (deleted on the 2nd Pattern smock, but often imitated by sewing woollen sock tops to the cuffs), were reintroduced. The base colour of the camouflage pattern was now a lighter khaki shade.The "Newey" press studs changed from brass/copper to nickel plated versions.
