POW Uniform?

I was looking through some of my uniforms yesterday and came across a BD I have dated 1944. Its war service dress, but has 'P W S' stamped inside which I had never really taken much notice of before.

I seem to recall recently that a black BD was sold (or for sale) on ebay with the PWS stampings inside and was referred to as 'Prisoner of war Service', I E, those given to the POWs as replacement uniform.

Is this correct, and with it being RAF blue instead of black, particularly unusual?
