The Battle Jacket was the combat uniform worn by British Commonwealth and Imperial forces and many Free European Forces through the Second World War. It was worn mostly but not exclusively in temperate climates. In some armies it continued in use into the 1970s. During the Second World War and thereafter this uniform was also used for formal parades (including mounting the Queen"s Guard at Buckingham Palace).
The jacket (or blouse) was copied as the American Ike jacket of late WWII.
These are as new if not unissued Australian Army jackets still packed in wooden crates with waxed paper.
