I agree that the style is Victorian but many regiments kept such ornate style for their mess dress well into the 20th century. The typed label suggests a rather date to me, as does the condition,...

I would say the same: they may be valuable. Check under 'Britain's'. Some of the sets are no worth hundred's of pounds and the Gurkha set sounds interesting and salable.

And the '7/2' very probably indicates #7, 2nd Coy or 2nd Troop. Very nice.

WWI British/Canadians had a special vets or tunic for machine gunners [Lewis gun] to carry their weapons, with special shoulder pads and all. I suspect this is an equivalent item, perhaps for Bren...
