Default British Royal Air Force Warrant Officer's Service Tunic

Warrant Officer's wore a similar style Service Dress uniform to Officer's, albeit of a different quality.

Rank is shown on the tunic by the large Royal coat of arms worn on the lower sleeves.

This Tunic was made in 1947 by Swallow Raincoats LTD

Nice tunic but I think that the ribbon bar, particularly the QSA, is unlikely for a bloke in service around 1947.

Looks like it could well be a pin back ribbon bar,I'd say someone just added it as it was a spare ribbon bar laying around and looked good on the uniform! Though having said that the ribbon bar itself is nice as it's unusual to see a QSA and then just a pair!
