An Estonian lieutnant (A captain would wear four braids on cuff, an oddity ....) in M. 36 Uniform. His arm of service badges are worn on collars (I cannot discern what they look like). He is wearing an Estonian Military Pilot Qualification badges(over his medals). The two badges under his medals are probably unit and/or qualification badges but they are too small for me to tell which. If you can post a close up, maybe that will help.

My pleasure. If you can post a close up of the badges he wears, maybe I shall be able to say what they are.

Unfortunately, I am incompetent with medals ....

Hi Noor,, thanks for the link, I had actually found who he was eventually, I appreciate your input

attached from another thread (Bringing History back to life)

I colourise black and white image as a small pastime, so getting medals, uniforms etc correct is important otherwise no point in doing it
