Description

Blue grey tunic is tailor made of tricot wool and the tailor's name, 'Wilhelm Thiele, München', is woven into the hanging loop. I believe the tunic was rebadged and the hand embroidered bullion early droop tailed eagle appears to be replaced or re-attached. Yellow wool hand embroidered bullion tabs are hand sewn to the collar. Shoulderboards may be original to the tunic. The lining, which has a dagger/sword slit, shows some resewing to a seam. 1939 EK II buttonhole mounted ribbon and loops for one badge. There are a couple of small bites to one sleeve as can be seen in the photos. Overall in fine condition for a tunic that has been worn.
