Pretty sure it's not RNLAF, they have dark blue rank stripes.


Gold stripes denote Navy, but not the Royal one as it doesn't have a curl on top. Maybe merchant navy?


We too ( RAF) have blue rings and stripes but gold on mess dress, so I reckon this is a RNLAF Wg Cmdr mess dress jacket.

I think it is the old model RNLAF ceremonial dress jacket. Ranks on these were in gold; in this case the 3 even stripes indicating a lieutenant-colonel.


I stand corrected.


Harlingen having a port made me think of the merchant navy, but on second thoughts it's only some 30 kms away from Leeuwarden AFB.


Taylor did use to supply uniforms, as per their 1965 ad. It does not seem there are still in business, otherwise you could ask.
