One of the most iconic pieces of WW2 clothing, famous as much for it's long march across Europe as it is for a certain taxi driver! What many people might not know, is that the name Tanker was only really applied post war, these were officially known as Jacket Winter, Combat. This is an example of the second pattern, and it was one of the most well liked and widely used jackets of the war. Issued to tank crews certainly, but these were worn by everyone from the navy shore parties through to USAAF fighter pilots. And it's obvious to see why, these are a beautifully crafted piece with a great fit, and perfect for providing warmth in winter.

Condition

This is in good, solid and perfectly wearable condition. The original Conmar zip works perfectly. The waistband has a few small repairs, and the cuffs have some wear and repairs. There is one repair to the front, and a frayed around to one shoulder. The blanket lining is practically perfect. The cuffs could be repaired if the new owner desires it though I honestly don't recommend it, the saltiness makes this piece!
