1897 Pattern Drab Wool Boer War Period Tunic

Price: $999.00

A very scarce 1897 British pattern drab wool tunic with converted collar. Originally it would have had a stand and fall collar but now has a stand collar. It has the top of the pockets one inch from the second button making it a 1897 pattern. It has the single point pockets similar to the 1899 pattern but pleats at the neck which is seen on the 1896-97 patterns. 5 button front. The buttons are all kings crown small Canada buttons. 2 are replacements. This could very well have seen action in the Boer War. No interior lining or pockets. It has two holes on the reverse for belt support hooks. It appears to have had a field repair for a large gash. Overall condition is very good.
