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.
