Just wondering if this jacket I have is the same? Although it seems to be in excellent condition,besides a few holes in the lining.
But TR Booker Ltd was known as Booker Spalding after 1982, so it is pre 1982.
Thankyou for pointing this out Barry, we have taken this information down and are working on getting the correct information from the family.
In my view it is highly unlikely that this is a WW2 jacket.
It appears to be more 1980's period.
