My wife bought me this jacket this morning and I have no idea where it is from as it has no labels. It is very heavy with a lining and fur collar.

Looks like an RAF Cold weather Parka. I don't think it's an original though, as AFIK they were never produced in OG just RAF blue/grey.

Thanks for the heads up. Looks like mine is original and from further research it seems it can in green and grey/blue and were issued up to the early 1980's.
