    RARE, 1st Pattern, WW2 1942 Dated British Airborne Para Troops Camouflaged Denison Smock By Wareings Ltd Used By Glider Pilot Staff Sgt Maurice Herridge During Operation Market Garden At Arnhem With Pegasus Formation Patch, Sgt Chevrons Brass KC Badges - 11667

    This is an original early WW2 British Camouflaged Denison Smock with tail flap (see page 68 of Denison published by Wilson & Military Mode). This example came directly from the family of WW2 Para glider pilot S/Sgt - Phone number removed - Maurice Herridge who wore the smock in action during Operation Market Garden (17–25 September 1944 fought in the Netherlands and Germany in the Second World War. The operation was split into two sub-operations: Market – the airborne forces, the First Allied Airborne Army, who would seize bridges including Arnhem. Garden – the ground forces, consisting of the British XXX Corps). Maurice saw action at Arnhem where gliders were used and losses were heavy. Maurice survived the war and wore the smock at reunions and memorial visits to Arnhem until his death in his 80’s. The rare smock has its original white cotton label inside crisply marked 'Smock Denison Airborne Troops Size 5 Height 5’9” to 5’ 11” Breast 37” to 39” Wareings (N’Ton) Ltd (manufacturer), 1942 (date)'. There is also an ink WD stamp with arrow. It has the correct ‘Newey’ press stud fasteners all of which are present and fasten as they should. Both sleeves are mounted with Pegasus Formation Patches, Sgt Chevrons & Brass KC Badges. This early Denison is clean and has no damage but does have surface wear consistent with age and service use. The inside of the smock also has a later applied ink name rank and number of Maurice written by a family member of his, before it came into our possession. It has the correct elasticated woven cuffs, zip and tail. The price for this early WW2 smock with connections to WW2 Glider use at Arnhem and worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 11667
