Help with windproof please!

#1
Hello,

I'm hoping someone here may be able to help me with some info on a windproof smock that came in with a job lot of militaria.

It appears to be gaberdine,has 2 chest and 2 hip pockets all with taped buttons,an unwired sewn in hood, a 2 way plastic zip it also has a union jack patch stitched to the top of the left arm.

I've tried googling the number on the label,without success,please can someone identify this jacket for me and if possible give me a rough idea of age please?

Many thanks,
Andy
