RAF Greatcoats (Continued)

Following Saturday’s post on the New Pattern RAF greatcoat a good friend and fellow collector has supplied me with photographs of his wartime greatcoat for comparison. I am not going to repeat the details of the differences again, but I will place the photos side by side so you can see how they compare. I hope this will prove useful to other collectors when looking to add a greatcoat to their collection.
