    As the prototype jacket had a one-piece back would this make it unlikely to be cape?

    It is fascinating reading this though, how passionate you guys are to try and get as close as possible to 'accuracy'. Probably end up with a better jacket than any original.

    Any contract would have had a different number, called an order number.

    Now the spec number is yet a third number. Specification 94-3040 would be a written document describing the jacket in detail. (Presumably it wasn't written in 1894, so 94- must have stood for something other than the fiscal year.)

    As you can see, the paper shufflers were ready for the next war long before the combat arms!

    No. Cape sheep are big enough to get an A-2 one piece back out of a hide.
