1944 Dated Denison Smock.

This example has come back in to me this week. Its a very nice and clean 1944 dated smock, super bright colours with very little ware to the material. All brass newely poppers are in working condition, both bottom adjusting straps are complete, minor fray to the material underneath from both straps having been closed over for many years.The zip is in working condition but is frail, some teeth missing, i have managed, since selling this item, to purchase a full WW2 ''swift'' zip with camo backing material, this will be sent out with the smock . There is minor fraying to the sleeve areas, i mean minor and just a couple of stains from storage. The tail has been period removed as is sometimes found on these examples, dont forget, not only Paras were issued these smocks! Inside has a very clear makers label for the firm Henry Brown and of course has the great dated 1944 and its a large size 6.
As mentioned in my previous listing of this garment, it was found locally by a young couple when they purchased there first house in Cardiff last year.
