A khaki wool tunic with a four button fly front closure, and an open collar. There are pleated patch pockets to each breast, whose scalloped flaps have button closures. The integral shoulder straps are buttoned near the neck. The outside seam slashes at the pleated cuffs also have single, hidden button closures. All of the metal dish buttons retain all of their original olive drab paint, and all appear to have their original stitching. 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 is partially lined with a vertical slash pocket to both the left and right panels. 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. The tunic bears various pieces of insignia that includes "Royal Canadian Artillery" shoulder flashes, Sergeant Royal Canadian Artillery chevron, and a single Gun Layer trade badge to the right sleeve just above the cuff. Sewn above the left breast pocket are ribbon bars representing the 1939-1945 Star, France & Germany Star, Defence Medal, Volunteer Service Medal with maple leaf and a 1939-1945 War Medal that indicates a soldier is mentioned in dispatches. The chest measures approximately 36". Included, is a pair of pleated, olive drab wool battle dress trousers with a zipper front with a hook and eyelet to the waist, vertical slash side seam pockets, a pair of horizontal slash pockets with scalloped flap and hidden button closure. All of the metal dish buttons appear to have original stitching. To the interior, sewn to the waistband is a large, white tag that shows the date "April 1965" and that the trousers are a size 1. The waist measures approximately 29" with a 26.5" breech. Pristine!!!
