Night Night Squadron Leader, time to catch 40 winks, what ho!

Here is a set of 1942 dated RAF issue Pyjamas. A jacked part and bottoms made of striped cotton I presume. The bottoms are tied with a drawstring and the top is buttoned up. Really nice feel to them and a smart striped pattern. The top has the usual WD and arrow emblem and letter O above denoting it was issued in 1942. Presumably these were never actuall given out as the large stamp next to it denotes a 1955 date too so possibly re issued. The bottoms also have the 1955 RAF stamp in red and to the left can be seen a lovely although faint AM and crown motif.

For anyone dating WD marked items with a letter prefix rather than a date, the following letters represent the following years.

R-1939
Q-1940
P-1941
O-1942
N-1943
M-1944
Z-1945IMG_1589.JPG
