"Quis separabit?" 

Pre-2001 dress uniforms of Royal Ulster Constabulary, before they become the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Formed in 1922 after the Irish War of Independence, the organization played an integral role in ensuring the security of British Northern Ireland amidst the backdrop of "The Troubles". Having suffered nearly 319 dead and nearly 9000 wounded in the violence of The Troubles, they were one of the dangerous police forces in the world. Despite accusations of loyalists groups, they remained steadfastly professional throughout their existence and were collectively awarded the prestige George Cross for Valor in 2000, a rare medal for a collective organization.  

They are manufactured Turner Virr & Co. Ltd., who have produced dress uniforms for the British military and police service since 1850. These tunic uniforms are 5 buttoned in the style of Second World War battledress, and four three-prong flap buttoned pockets. They also include the standard issue tunic waist belt, intended to give the uniform a crisper dress uniform look. 

It appears the buttons are not the accurate RUC "Harp" buttons, instead featuring an unusual "Saltire" styled button. Maybe that's why they're in still almost brand new condition! These tunics make for a sharp walking out jacket, or as an excellent collector piece!
