An economy version of the 1907 pattern Tunic was produced in 1916.
Shown here are the two versions of the woollen drab tunic. The Private on the left is wearing the regular pattern tunic (introduced in 1907) with shoulder reinforcements and pleated pockets. The Rifleman on the right is wearing an economy tunic which lacks both pocket pleats and shoulder rifle patches. This economy tunic was introduced in 1916 but discontinued the following year.
