    Very clearly the second tunic is a British SD of the 22 type with some greek buttons added.
    Though there is some low possibility some of these were used as gap-fillers, are quite different
    from the Greek ones, no less because of the colour of the khaki, Greek khaki is more olive-green.

    very interesting items,thank you to share them with us!
    During the years of the Civil war,were the uniforms the same as these ones?Or each camp had his own wheither they were nationalist or communist?
    hello friend,
    Both sides in the civil war were wearing primarily British battledress. The Communist DSE also wore (much less) servicedress tunics, especially the officer type and made limited use of captured items like German or Italian tunics and maybe some newly made in yugoslavia, but they also look like battledress blouses plus civilian clothing. Apart from 1944-1945 they used no helmets, the primary headgear was a WW1 or WW2 type sidecap with DSE insignia.
    Rank was indicated by stars, same as National Army. The National Army were 100% perfect copied from contemporal British gear and uniforms plus Brodie helmets and khaki berets.

    Hello Giorgos,
    Sorry for the delay reply. Thanks for posting the interior of the side cap I requested.
    I don't really know much about these and what particular pattern is this one , I think there was a few patterns.
    Is there any documentation on these caps that one can read and learn from?
    Excellent pre war group. thanks for sharing.
    Cheers

    indeed the greek army used some british supplied service dress tunics as is my example and the buttons of the the greek service dress tunics were manufactured in England.

    Hello everyone, i have just seen this thread.
    Very nice items Giorgos. Thanks for posting.
    I have been looking for a long time for WWII period Greek uniforms and couldn't find anything.
    Mpairaktaris.com has a lot of uniforms but 99% are post war and only 1% pre war like the dress piece you have.
    Those pre war uniforms are very expensive too.

    Beware though as most of his German militaria are fakes.
    Look at this uniform for example.
