Single-breasted open-collared jacket of khaki cloth with pleated breast pockets and bellows pockets to the skirts. Single rank stars are attached to the epaulettes. The jacket is fitted with regimental pattern buttons and has two inverted blue cloth overseas service chevrons above a single red to the lower right sleeve. Above the left breast pockets are sewn the medal ribbons for the following awards: Queen's Sudan Medal; 1915-15 Star; British War Medal 1914-1920; Victory Medal; LSGC; Khedive's Sudan Medal.
The jacket is heavily infested and the right sleeve is partially detached at the underarm. It is clear that bronzed officer pattern regimental collar badges were once fitted but these have been removed.
