service dress

Service Dress - Khaki Service Dress had been adopted across the British Army since 1902. It replaced the traditional red coat of the British Infantry. Both Officers and Other Ranks wore the khaki or drab coloured uniform, though the pattern of tunic was much different for Officers. This style of uniform was worn through until just before the Second World War with very little variation in the pattern occurring during this time. A lighter weight khaki drill uniform was worn in warmer climates.
