    I am sure that some Generals simply moved pips instead of replacing boards outright. There are surviving examples where an officer (or general) have had a gull added to their collar tabs in lieu of buying a new set. So while generals certainly had the funds to buy new insignia and/or uniforms, they didn't always.

    My two cents, at least.

    Years ago, I had a waffenrock belonging to a Major General who had previously been a Oberst of Pioneer. He retained his tunic with the black piping and changed the shoulder straps and breast eagle. General do what they feel like doing and are not held to a code of uniform.

    Hi Bob,

    Very true. These senior ranking officers and generals got away with things that lower ranks wouldn't dream of. And while there are uniforms out there where the general was more frugal than some of his peers, I have uniforms that were upgraded with new insignia, and some that were brand new tailored for that specific promotion. There are groupings out there to one man who had everything under the sun tailored: leather and wool great coats, formal evening uniform, fliegerbluse, tunic, breeches, long trousers, cape, etc. Can you imagine how expensive all that was? They certainly had the pay grade to afford it.

    Hi Wiki, always a pleasure looking at this magnificent cap. Did you ever manage to recoup Kurt's uniform?
