An item of uniform that was loved by many a nurse over the years,a typical nurses cape,probably dating to the 1960s or 70s.This Black(? woollen) Cape, lined with a red material,has a collar and button front.It is of a longer length than magnet 42 inches/107cms.It retains the red cross over straps with button fixing,for securing it around the body.
The original label is for Wearwell Uniforms,L Wells & Co ltd,London SW 18( they were certainly in business in the 1950s)
In generally very good condition although there are two or three moth holes to the interior lining.
A heavy piece for the re-enactor or just for nostalgia!
