Indian Army Khaki Sweater with Pockets and Epaulets

Indian Army Khaki Sweater with Pockets and Epaulets
This is the sweater immortalized in the WWII cartoon series "The Two Types." A heavy weight all wool sweater popular with British officers on the Northwest Frontier, it was worn in the Western Desert in WWII as a sign that the wearer had "been there," as opposed to being fresh from Blighty.  Two front chest pockets, epaulets for wearing rank slides, cotton elbow patches.

UK P-37 Battledress Jackets
View There were no giants in WWII. If you are exceptionally tall or wide, there is no battledress of any kind to fit you except reproductions. Even if you are a normal WWII size, real British BD is extremely scarce. Jackets in normal sizes can be found by diligent searching; trousers are nearly impossible.
