If I can ever "unscrew" my PayPal(it is locked because it thinks someone tried to access my account), I will pay a mere 400 for this unquestionably original tunic. Worst case scenario, the sum of it's parts is worth more than 400!! I will just have to find an equally worn eagle and a matching button for temporary application!

It looks like the man walked home from France upon the surrender, in that tunic! Maybe it did some time in a POW internment camp? Here are the repaired elbows!

It has loops for a small ribbon bar as well. I think that a crusty 1914 EK2 and an HK would go on nicely!

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain.
