Full description:

A liner jacket. It is made of a shiny, khaki-green fabric on the outside, with a cream-coloured woollen towelling fabric on the inside, and a plain green cloth edging. The sleeves are not lined at the elbow or the armpit. It opens the whole way down the front, with five buttonholes on either side, and four buttonholes around the neck – to button into an outer garment. Each cuff has a plain cloth flap with one buttonhole protruding from either side – again, to button into an outer garment. There are no manufacturer's labels.
