Original WW2 Cape Breton Highlanders, 5th Canadian Armoured Division Battle Dress tunic for Lance Corporal. The jacket is dated 1940. Good used condition. Fitted with it original makers label what we only see in early tunics, label is unreadable. All insignia are original period applied, nicely sunken down exactly how it should be! Both shoulders straps have the 8th Army patches. Very nice BD tunic.
