    Looks like it may be Royal Marines.

    It is clearly labelled as a RM tunic - which the upper part resembles - and I would suggest that it has been subsequently re-modelled as a BD blouse. The DV and anchor stamp is that of Devonport RN depot.

    I've got one similar to yours, but it does not appear to be modified.

    It has pebble buttons though.

    Can't explain that either.

    I got them from this guy: http://www.ebay.com/sch/rev3937/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

    He appears to have more, all with the same pebble buttons.

    I have my Grandfathers khaki tunic and trousers in Canuck configuration. He was issued these before going overseas, but they apparently stayed home. He was a mechanic, but some homefront units were known to wear these as well.
