Default 1949 pattern

Friends,

A lovely sample of the 1949 pattern wing!

Black cloth on the reverse, I would think! Although I have seen one with a paper back.

Well done!

Cheers,

Johan

Here's a photo front and back of a similar example I have.

Looks like it's seen a bit of service!

Default Steamer Point

Friends,

Steamer Point was a location where military tailors were located in Aden.

See label and wing as sold in Aden.

The 1949 pattern shown in earlier post was probably just made in the UK.


cheers,

Johan
