    Very nice - 60 pattern smock as already indicated.

    Last one is a 1951 pattern parka. Introduced to combat the extreme cold of Korean winters and based on the US olice parkas of the time. Interestingly, this was then adapted to the 1953 pattern (a later version of which is your second parka) which featured a removeable hood and a much thicker cotton shell than the earlier version.
