A rare World War Two 'striptease suit' has sold for over £4,000 after a bidding war.<br />
<br />
The camouflaged canvas jumpsuit earned its rude nickname as it has a full length zip, enabling the secret agent to quickly get out of it after landing in occupied Europe.<br />
<br />
It was worn over civilian clothes so they could blend in as quickly as possible with the locals behind enemy lines.<br />
<br />
The suits, used by both British and American agents, had various interior pockets for guns, other weapons and shovels.
