Original British WWI Royal Engineers Red Tunic and Coverall Set- Unissued
Original Item: Fewer than five sets available. Never issued, found in government storage and recently released these are wonderful Pre WWI Red parade tunics with black velvet collars and cuffs piped in yellow cord, complete with all Regimental cyphered brass buttons.
These look absolutely new, but they do actually date from 1914 and before as remains of paper labels indicate on the jacket interiors.
What is the catch? They are all Size SMALL and we mean small. Small in 1914 means pipsqueak in 2012! These would fit a 10-12 year old boy so they are for display only, cctually perfect for a manikin.
The buttons on some are still paper wrapped from the factory. Some buttons may have been replaced between WW1 and WW2 but all are 100% original. Included with each Pre WWI Tunic come a pair of very dark navy coveralls (pants) with wide red stripe down the outside of each leg denoting a "Royal Regiment". These Coveralls are all post WWII but are undated and are identical to pre WWI issue.
An amazing opportunity to acquire an Original British Red Tunic Set that is almost 100 years old and is offered in unissued condition
