Ths uniform is often referred to as being for the "Green Jackets" which were those Infantry regiments in the British Army given "Rifle Regiment" status. The uniform came with a paper name tag belonging to: "Major H.M.G. Bond", however this uniform has been upgraded to now include the red cloth collar insignia of a Major General (i.e.: a 2 Star General). The shoulder epaulettes are of the Rifle Regiment's style and have the metal insignia attached of a Major General. Sewn to the upper right sleeve is the bullion cloth winged insignia for service as a Paratrooper. The button motif indicates that this uniform was worn by General Bond while serving in the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry Regiment.
