    Beware though as most of his German militaria are fakes.
    Look at this uniform for example.
    you are right i examined this tunic myself some time ago but for greek militaria he has quite a lot!

    giorgos p the greek EM tunic its quite simular but not exactly the same as the british one...i have both and i can tell...i'v never heard of british tunics used by greek troops in 1940/41...i dont think that's ever done...simply original EM tunics are extremely hard if not totaly impossible to find today so the greek collectors using the british ones to fill the gap...

    i agree with you that they are hard to find but my example has a war department inspection stamp and the buttons are original to the tunic because the stiching of them is original to the tunic.

    if i remember correctly i have read in a book by the greek armys history department that the british supplied the greek army with some uniform items during the war against Italy and that is the reason that i believe my tunic is original
