    With A&SH staybright buttons, there's no Dirk cut out so I'm assuming it's a WO's rather than Officers,
    It comes from one of the newer uniform tailors here in the UK, not bad for 40

    That's fantastic!

    I've always loved the Patrol jackets.

    Here you can see their use by Highland officers c1900, worn with trews, and sometimes riding boots.



    Nowadays you see Pipe Majors (and other senior pipers) wearing them with kilts.

    Here is Captain Gavin Stoddart



    And here worn by Gordon Walker while a Sergeant

    As you mention these are worn with no dirk belt and the dirk's suspender going through a slot in the jacket.

    Note they are worn (by pipers) with full regimental diced or tartan hose, buckled brogues, and horsehair Full Dress sporran.

    It's quite a strange one I've no details of the regimental speck for this jacket, I do know the No15 dress(Patrol) for the RRS the spine of the jacket us pleated. There's no Dirk pocket too which leaves me to believe it's the RSM version! Mind I can't find anything for the A&SH dress regs on the net
