Duke of Wellington WO1 SD (38/39")
Duk of Wellington Regt WO1 SD Uniform
A Duke of Wellington's Regiment (West Riding) service dress uniform consisting of jacket, trousers, cloth belt, shirt and tie (Sam Browne not included but available as option). Jacket has Warrant Officer Class 1 rank badges to both cuffs (KC and QC, see below), staybrite DWR buttons and collar dogs, and ribbons for the Defence Medal, War Medal, Korea Medal, UN Korea Medal, a Campaign Service Medal (pre '62), and a Long Service/Good Conduct Medal. SD trousers are button fly, hook/loop and button waist fastening, button down belt loops, adjustable waist, and belt loops. A modern fawn shirt and khaki wool tie are also included (pls select size from options). This uniform has some damage (see below) but the description sounds worse than it looks - despite the moth holes it is an interesting item with a great WW2/Korea medal ribbon set. Unusually it also has both Kings crown and Queens crown WO1 badges, indicative of the time-frame covered by this man's service, and probably only acceptable to the RSM!
