.... who may have worn this tunic in the war.  
 

Baden IR112 NCO tunic that appears close to issue yet it has to be private purchase imo....

nice quality but seems expensive 5A02CE16-0151-45B2-88BA-0AAA8BB7E6DA.thumb.jpeg.37761d1d2fa1b0b0a5d2b3e9814d9065.jpeg75B9078E-A53B-491F-BAC0-92E3908B7859.thumb.jpeg.e1ec5609723ae4439fbb96e19982c025.jpeg50FC9DE4-3DCC-4860-8FEB-9E4A95D9C6E8.thumb.png.433f04c3e1be9236de41aa38058cf484.pngE5E0A37F-FBA8-41C5-9647-D0155E02D182.thumb.jpeg.6cbc17d187cac36961f6c505d92d4540.jpeg0C9A8307-345A-4AF5-8157-1EF209FAB7CA.thumb.jpeg.fb3eaff6b3e9abbc911563fbd8b5f80e.jpeg45E6AA9A-9A44-479F-A153-ADE5ED2EA085.thumb.jpeg.763095abec5ccc5ba46ac495e27d323d.jpegED596BBF-195C-4C60-AD4B-85316CA9BEAF.thumb.jpeg.6fcd1f45fe62e42d871b0b6b3127f7aa.jpeg2FC26306-7F4C-4914-B474-68F8E388BF5C.thumb.jpeg.8d63c843f6890e2dbe533f8db797ac01.jpegC7FA75EE-719A-4DF1-BAD2-0CD67A5C13E7.thumb.jpeg.b1ee050c3e1d218d5881f4d3d57dc5a7.jpeg

Well.... I shan’t finish the joke...   

 

 

I will...

There once was a man from Baden

Who likes slices of bread with lard on

If a jacket like that was Bavarian

I would have gotten a ... bank loan to buy it!

Thank you.  I was going to be seriously disappointed and displeased if there were not at least a partial pun in this post.  You can't raise expectations like that, Chris, and then just walk away.  But what rhymes with 'Bavarian'?  :)

I don’t get it... can’t find anything that rhymes...

 

anyway, it’s a very nice tunic but not sure about the price. But, enlisted and NCO tunics don’t come around often....

Hello Gentlemen , Certainly nice tunic . privately purchased and to a good taylor (expensive ) stand and fall collar officers type . a point puzzles me. the absence of lace on the cuffs .

I’m not sure of the regulations but I think it was an order to simplify rank insignia. However, it was not completely adhered to.  
I’d have to research and not sure which in my books discuss this so o have tried to look. I was hoping someone would answer this for us.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
