Was at the surplus store yesterday picking out items for my Halloween costume and ran across a surplus peacoat - looked in OK condition (obvious but not ridiculous wear) but was missing a button. Didn't take pics, but it fit me decently well, if not a bit long in the sleeves and body (I'm a small guy). Couldn't find ANY sizing or make info on the coat at all, except for a very faded stencil on the lining that said "Leicester MS" and a string of numbers underneath it. Anyone have a clue as to what it may mean?
I think I may swing back around to the store today and just pick it up - the pricing is only at $50!
Probably the original sailor's name followed by his service number.
