C050861 CANADIAN BATTLEDRESS TUNIC. A khaki wool tunic with a five button fly front closure, and a lay-down collar with a button under one side 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. Three stitched eyelet ventilation holes are beneath each armpit. 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, in black, a "C broad-arrow," "Master Craft Uniform Co. Regd. Quebec" and then "Battle Dress," "Blouse - Serge," "Size No. 2" "Height - 5' 3" to 5'4"," "Breast - 34" to 35", and a year stamp of 1955. 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. This is almost identical to the WWII Canadian Battledress Tunic. Never been issued.
