Waterproofing old jacket

Any of you old farts remember having one of these jackets?

Just wondering what you used to use to waterproof it.

Looks like an old pusser's mac. They were ssued instead of burbs,as I recall. Took mine to the dry cleaners to get it re-proofed, no idea what they did with it.

I had one and swapped it when the new burbs with epaulettes came out, they, in turn, were binned soon after. I still occassionally wear it as it's still fit for purpose but no idea what the cleaners use to waterproof it.

Thanks. I've been doing some work on the inlaws land, would make a half decent overcoat if it kept the rain off. Not bothered about trashing it.

Go into Blacks shop, they do various waterproofing sprays. If it's one of the Burberrys from the '60's era they were a good piece of kit.

I still have one of those in my cardboard pussers case.
I don't think they were ever waterproof.
