WW2 British army driver's shearling jerkin

From the look of the buttonholes it seems to be a standard Army jerkin with a shearling lining and a collar. He might well have got it modified himself somewhere.

Most of the WW2 ones on sale are a bit sad now but you can still buy very good Belgian army versions in unissued condition. They have brass buttons but they can be changed and are otherwise pretty identical.

I remember when surplus stores used to be piled high with ex service jerkins but I'm not sure I recall seeing one with pile like that. Just so happens that I've got a rather minty Belgian example that I wear every now and again.

Is that a personalmodification Steve ? Never seen one like that before in my text books .. Neither an Irvin or B-6 do the job for you ?
