137 was wearing only trousers and singlet, typical of the working clothes of a fireman. 308 was a couple of inches too short, and it would be rare for a 1st class passenger to be carrying no effects worthy of note other than a handkerchief.

Something like a T-shirt but without the short sleeves. Could be cotton or wool. My dictionary gives: a close-fitting, usually sleeveless garment worn under or instead of a shirt.
