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 alone like this unissued.
This is in mint, unissued condition. There are some storage and pencil marks on the reverse that will clean out if washed
