1918 Royal Artillery Territorial Lieutenant's Uniform


Recommended Posts

Hi Chaps, been on a hiatus from the forum for far too long, I thought I'd make a return by posting up some photos of a recent acquisition, a 1918 dated RA Territorials Officer's tunic, rather interesting as it's made to an off-the-peg size. In rather nice condition for it's age.

Thanks for showing.  I've not seen the "T" below the Ubique grenades before.

 

Glad it was of interest. I rather thought the collars for TF RA Officers gained the 'Ubique' at the same time as the cap badge, in 1917. I believe the Ts, in contrast, were regulation until 1940. Happy to be corrected but that was my understanding, not saying as gospel as I sadly don't have access to my reference books to double check right now.

Well I bought it with two other jackets, another SD tunic from the 20s and a 1928 dated blues tunic, all to the same chap, only discovered the date in this afterwards! The reason for the purchase was originally that it should fit and they were something of a bargain.
