I see by the close up photo that the binding and ribbons are silk. A nice officer's Glen. I think the confusion that people have here is in regard to WD issue uniform items and officer private purchase uniform items. As I mentioned earlier, virtually all officer uniform items in the old days were not issued by the Government. They had to be purchased from private military tailors by the officer. This Glen could have been purchased by an officer for service wear, or a civilian for whatever reason as well. There is no difference and unless there is provenance, no way to tell. It is military pattern and I would be quite comfortable in having it as such.
