.... 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

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....

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.

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • 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.
