WWII British Army Reproduction M1943 Cotton Khaki Enlisted Battledress Jacket – Aertex Fabric
This is a reproduction of the WWII British Army M1943 Cotton Khaki Battledress Jacket made from Aertex Fabric. Aertex was a Manchester based British clothing company who developed a lightweight loose weave cotton for making shirts. During WWII all British and Commonwealth serving in the Far and Middle Eastern Theatres of Operation wore uniforms made from this material, known as Jungle Greens in the Far East and Khaki Drills in the Middle East. This particular battledress jacket is made from that very breathable fabric and features the two plain chest pockets, full button front, cloth waist closure flap buckle, shoulder epaulettes and, like the originals, is yarn dyed to prevent fading.
