A British Infantry woodland uniform from Steven Spielberg's 2011 war drama, War Horse - adapted from Michael Morpurgo's eponymous 1982 novel.
After his beloved thoroughbred horse Joey is sold to the cavalry, Albert Narracott (Jeremy Irvine) enlists to serve in World War I. The film tells the story of the pair's incredible journeys across Europe as Joey touches the lives of people as tragedies of war unfold around him.
This uniform was worn by one of the infantry soldiers gathered in the woods in France before the deadly cavalry charge that Major Stewart (Benedict Cumberbatch) leads against 'unprepared' German forces twice their size. The set consists of a 1902 Jacket with a ‘Grenadier Guards’ patch on the shoulder (missing a button), a pair of 1902 trousers, putties, and a cap with leather strap and metal emblem. There is also a set of P1908 webbing and equipment that consists of a metal water bottle, numerous ammo pouches filled with black wooden blocks to give them the appearance of being full, a satchel, side pouch and entrenching shaft.
The costume has very little wear from production use and age and remains in an excellent condition.
Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Ferrous Metals, Leather.
