Im not into the RAF side of things but do occasionally in a trade or buy a few bits that have some RAF(in order to get the other bits) end up with the odd RAF items and have today received 2 RAF tunics that in all honesty havent had a chance to check out the differences yet but one of the labels mentions SIMPLIFIED in it-will if I can get my camera issues sorted post up a few pics and would be interesting to see what the differences are between the two tunics.

I've got both types too. I'll dig them out later to check, but I'm pretty sure the simplified tunic was the RAF's attempt at austerity. They removed a pleat and that was about it!
