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.

I think I’ve heard that before.

Thanks for the interesting discussion, everyone.
