1st Battalion Royal Hants Battledress C1946
1944 dated \' 1940 Patt Battledress Blouse \' with badges for the 1st Battalion Royal Hampshire Regiment whilst serving with 1st Infantry Division in Palestine. The combination of insignia is still configured in the wartime manner but would indicate approx. 1946 . ( The 1st Batt served in palestine from 1945 to 1946 ). The wartime BD is in generally good, used condition with dart alterations to the reverse. Moth damage to r/h pocket and minor wear to belt closure. An interesting transitional piece between wartime and peace.
