M8617 - WORCS REGT, OFFICERS TROPICAL SHORT SLEEVE JACKET.   £75
A well used and sun bleached, army officers tropical, lightwieght, 4 pocket jacket with rolled sleeves. Jacket has regimental brass buttons for the Worcestershire Regiment and inside is a Moss Bros label stating, " Capt.W.Brown. 1st Bat Worcs Regt. May 1942" The Worcesters were stationed in the Middle East at the wars start and the 1st Batt fought right through the african campaigns but in late june 1942, after heavy fighting in the Battle of Gazala, were captured when Tobruk fell, so Capt Brown may well have worn this jacket at Tobruk.
