At your service, I'm sure. The No. 6 tropical uniform jacket is the standard...errr tropical jacket of the British Military. It has four flapped pockets (the lower ones without buttons), eppaulettes, removable buttons (makes fitting those leather jobs easy), a centre pleat in the back and a removeable belt that stows away inside. The sleeve end are plain rather than buttoning at the cuff.
I like them because they can be had for 10GBP unissued if you know where to look. But then, so can 1950 Pattern Aertex jobs, and they have more historical credibility. Suez, Malaya, Aden, Dharfur and all that.
