1948 China Navy Souvenir jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271900878870
This vintage jacket was made in the 1940s as a souvenir of a tour in China. It is a waist length wool jacket, with shirt style pockets and an extension tab waistband. The quality of the wool makes me think the jacket itself was Theatre made rather than a cut down uniform. It is embroidered with dragons on the insides of the cuffs, liberty cuff style, a junk and a rickshaw on the breast pockets, and a dragon on the back. The back reads, “Tsing Tao, Hong Kong, Shanghai, China, 1948″. The front of the jacket bears the original owner’s name, Don C. Yanders, who served aboard submarines during WWII and who was stationed in China in the immediate post-war years.

Chest (pit to pit): 19″ (doubled = 38″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25-1/2″
Length (base of collar to hem): 22″
