WW1 tunic

Post by Ellie »

I'm trying to find a British WW1 uniform, specifically a tunic. I wondered whether anyone in the North of England might have one I could look at? I know they're available to buy/hire, but they're quite expensive and my budget is very limited. I've been asked to make a piece of artwork for an exhibition based on the Somme and wanted to start by making a replica uniform. What I need is access to a uniform - or a good replica - for an hour or so, in order to check its construction and take measurements. Might anyone be able to help? Thank you.

This might help, but do make careful reference to images of the exact date tunic you want to replicate to be sure you are using the right notes

Look in a book
There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

I can certainly help out.
