    WW1 Era British Royal Welsh Fusiliers (RWF) Territorial Officer's Mesopotamia / Gallipoli Service Tunic Jacket With Major Rank Insignia, Overseas Service Stripe, Formation Patches & Rare To Find Silk 5 Tape Regiment ‘Pig Tail’ Flash. Sn 15703:18 - 15703:18

    The RWF Regiment has a very unique feature to its uniform; a flash made up of five overlapping silk ribbons at the back of the neck. This legacy is from 1808 when the common practice of soldiers wearing pigtails was abolished. The Regiment did not receive the orders until 1809 when it returned to England and then continued to wear the ribbons which had tied the pigtails. In 1834 the Regiment was finally given permission to wear this non-regulation item by special Royal concession. Elements of the RWF Territorials fought in Mesopotamia and at Gallipoli. This is an excellent Service Tunic Jacket of the WW1 era as worn by troops fighting in Mesopotamia and at Gallipoli. The lightweight sand coloured Tunic is clean with just minor areas of service wear. It is single breasted with open collar, pleated chest pockets, Plain lower bag pockets and false turn back cuffs. All pockets have flap covers. The lapels have brass ‘T’ Territorial insignia. The epaulettes bear the single King’s Crown insignia of Major and RWF brass titles. It has Kings Crown RWF Regiment buttons (one pocket button is absent). Both shoulders have black and white formation patches. One sleeve has an overseas service stripe. The back of the collar has its original RWF silk 5 tape Regiment ‘Pig Tail’ flash. The body of the Tunic has brass belt hooks. There are no visible manufacturer or date marks on the Tunic. It is approx UK size 38" Chest. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 15703:18
