Will Mathieson (Volunteer unit on Lancaster Bayonet / viewtopic.php?f=27&t=11734) has cited both this:

and a very, very comprehensive Archive:

Thanks for this Peter, it is rare to find a shell jacket in such good condition. Out of interest, it is a shell jacket that was also used for mess dress, which the description does not make clear. In effect it is an undress 'working' garment.
