RN Cdre No1 Ceremonial/Tailcoat A Royal Navy doeskin Number 1 ceremonial uniform ranked to a Commodore consisting of tailcoat, waistcoat and trousers (shirt/tie not included, cap available as option). Tailcoat is fully lined and has Commodore's lace, parachute qualification "wings", All-arms Commando course "dagger" and QC RN senior officer's buttons to front and rear. White waistcoat is backless with RN officer's (not senior officer's) buttons. High-backed trousers are button fly/waist fastening with braces buttons and 1 1/4" gilt stripes.
Condition: Tailcoat in very good condition - clean and damage free other than 2 small pulls/holes to left elbow and a group of 4 small pulls (approx 1mm each) to front tail. Neither set of pulls are particularly noticeable. Buttons and rank lace in very good bright condition. Waistcoat has very little wear and retains it's brightness. There are around 6 spots (food? perhaps mustard or similar) to the front. These should wash out or be minimised by washing. Trousers are clean and only lightly worn. There is some damage at the bottom of the fly - a hole of approx 20mm x 10mm, and a smaller hole just below it (approx 10mm x 3mm). See photo below. Could be darned.
