A collection of British Khaki Drill uniform items, comprising:
Wolseley Pattern Solar Helmet
Bush Jacket / Shirt
The cork Wolseley Pattern Solar Hemet has the correct six panels with ventilated dome. Outside, the cloth shows evidence of perspiration with wear to the covering on the ventilation fitting. Inside, the lining is a green baize, the sweatband dated 1942, 6 Â¾, Failsworth hats Ltd. and 1942. The sweatband is partially detached from the helmet and there is no chinstrap. Complete with what appears to be itâ€™s original carrying cover, itself rather scarce. The Helmet is accompanied by a pair of aluminium framed googles of unknown origin in poor to fair condition only.
This Bush Jacket or Shirt is made in Khaki drill rather than Aertex and is in overall very good condition. Four patch pockets with five button front closure, the top button partly missing and with an epaulette to each shoulder. No label but approximately a 40â€ chest.
Shorts are the 1942 pattern without belt loops and have two adjustable straps to the front and a four button fly. At each side is a slash pocket with dressings pocket on the right. Very good condition with no label but about a 30â€ waist.
