A khaki wool tunic with a five button fly front closure, that lead to a lay-down collar. There are pleated patch pockets to each breast, whose scalloped flaps have button closures.

An integral belt, with a nickel-silver buckle and vertical wool retaining loop on its opposite side, is to the waistband. The back has multiple pleats to it above the waistband. The interior collar, waistband, and along either side of the front closure is lined in tan-colored cotton, and a large, vertical slash pocket, in the same material as the lining, is to each interior breast. To the right interior pocket is ink stamped "Size 3, Height 5'3"-5'4", Breast 36-37" and "Tip Top Tailors Ltd. 1952". Three vertical button holes are to a horizontal fly along the interior rear waistband, which allowed the tunic to be buttoned to the matching trousers. Below each shoulder strap are "P.P.C.L.I." shoulder flashes, a U.S. Presidential Unit Citation, 1st Infantry Division formation badges and Corporal chevrons. Above the left breast is a Canadian Qualified Parachute wings, with a three place ribbon bar is affixed below. The maroon, wool beret has a PPCLI cap badge affixed by cotter pin and lugs. The interior is stamped with the size (7 1/8") and the date of 1954. Both items are in very nice clean condition.
