Collection: WW2 British Army Leather Jerkins

During World War II, the British Army issued leather jerkins to its soldiers as a form of protective clothing. The jerkin was a sleeveless jacket made of tough, durable leather and was designed to be worn over a soldier's uniform to provide additional protection against the elements.

Leather jerkins were particularly useful for soldiers who served in cold and wet conditions, as they provided an additional layer of warmth and helped to repel rain and moisture. They were also popular with soldiers who served in the deserts of North Africa, as the leather helped to protect against the sun and sand.

The design of the leather jerkin evolved over the course of the war, with modifications made to improve its functionality and comfort.
