Hi, I bought this cheap a few years back, it has no label. judging by the stitch holes it has been relined, replacement AERO zipper, replacement cuffs. It has a United Carr popper on the inside pocket with a cream lining. The front two pockets have a dark green lining. Black USN stamp on the back of the collar.

It is indeed an Ed Church, which I think later became Burjac. The two most obvious tell-tales are the black USN and extea deep pocket flaps. The leather looks lovely, with fantastic shine. Once renovated that will be very nice! Its a pity the zip has been replaced so poorly in the past, but no big deal..

If the leather's in good sound condition, you definitely have a diamond in the rough! I posted this earlier, but here's a Church that received new mouton, lining and knits.

Sweet! If I get any free time soon I’m going to do mine. Already have a NOS Talon zip & a NOS waistband set back for it. Only been about 15 yrs since I bought the jacket!
