RAF Squadron Leader AE Mess A Royal Air Force Squadron Leader's mess dress uniform consisting of jacket, waistcoat and trousers (shirt/tie/braces excluded). Jacket has Sqn.Ldr's rank lace, Air Engineering Officer's half-brevet and mounted brass QC RAF buttons. Waistcoat is full backed with mounted king's crown brass buttons. Trousers are high backed with zip fly, hook/eye waist and braces buttons.
Condition: Overall this uniform is wearable for civilian events, particularly with a little attention paid to sewing/darning the lapel, but is in a generally worn state. Jacket has wear/damage to lapels - a noticeable worn patch approx 2cm x 1cm to upper lapel (see photo #12, not quite so obvious when lapel is folderd normally, and could be darned but would still be seen), wear and brown stains/marks to lower lapels (see photos #13 & #14). Trousers have a white mark on rear about 2cm long with a small hole in the centre (see photo #15) and a hole approx 3mm diameter on right knee. Waistcoat damage free, it does have some minor food marks to one side front bottom, which should clean out.
