|Other Ranks Frock
The Foreign Service khaki frock was cut with a loose fit, but there is much evidence that i was also worn tight much like the Home Service scarlet tunic. The early pattern frock was
made of a khaki drill, almost like denim, with a stand collar, five Queen Victoria Crown General Service buttons, two breast pockets and brass belt ramps. A paper size tag was sewn to
the interior, and by the 2nd Boer War a interior pocket was added for a first aid pack or an iron ration. An identity tag was also sometimes sewn to the interior opposite the pocket on
the lower flaps. Brass shoulder titles were fixed to the epaulets.
There was also a Highland, or Scottish Cut, version which allowed for the wearing of a sporran.
