Is it a gunner's smock, is it an anti-gas parka? There are so many rumours and half truths around about these garments, and whilst I don't have any definitive answers I believe these were anti-gas parkas designed to fit over a gasmask - the ties around the neck are there to secure a tight fit around a gasmask. Either way, these are much in demand in any condition, let along like this, in a very clean stated.
This is very good and clean, the original drawstrings and neck ties are all present and correct, as is the small lines stitched into the front pockets that I believe showed the size (3 lines being large). Some very faint storage marks, but otherwise amazing.
