Yes, I think that’s 44 Pattern Battledress.  I think they went for the short BD in the 1930s simply because it was a lot cheaper than the nice, long ‘safari jacket’ and they already had an eye on the coming war with Germany and the need for massive, rapid (and cheap) mobilisation.  Much the same as Frederick The Great having uniform coats made from the minimum amount of material, in order to save money.
