    Default Heer 1st Model Tropical/DAKTunic

    Hi all,
    Ade’s comments have fueled my will to post more items here with as many pictures as possible but I won’t indulge into lengthy descriptions.
    Now it’s the time for a beautiful first-model tropical jacket,referred to as the M40 tropical tunic,which has been ABSOLUTELY un-touched since the end of the War,down to its lone shoulder board (we can’t have everything,can we?) to…..the first aid kit in its pocket,which thing alone makes this tunic a one in a million IMO,even if I’ve found other two along the years,and one of them is still in my possession!
    Untouched and un-messed with M40s are not so thick on the ground but this one is kinda special to me.I cannot say whether it has seen action in Africa or not but it surely is a veteran of the Italian Campaign.
    The breast eagle has been machine stitched in its upper part,then flipped over and the rest has been neatly hand sewn.Every single part of the tunic,and that does include the small reinforcement patches,are stamped with the same number as if it was a WWI P-08!!!!!
    The tropical Y-straps with the green tab on the back are another Vet of the MTO but haven’t been found with the tunic....they're quite salty but the green web tab makes them rarer than the "common" straps with the leather piece and thus worthy of this baby!
    It’s all by now……time to consign the tunic to his mannequin back in my anti-burglar “bunker” and look for something else to share with you in the next days.
    Cheers
    Manny
    P.S.;The 1911 in one of the pictures isnt’ WH-issue…it’s my Les Baer CCW …heavy,cumbersome yet…..darn comfortable

    Its such a good example, that knowing the pics will always be there is a good thing. Maybe you could use the site image hoster and then they will always be available for people to view and compare against others.

    Thanks Manny for the prompt reply.

    My fault Jerry...I wanted to delete an album to make room for other pictures and as Murphy's law would have it "The album you''re about to delete will be the one containing the pictures a buddy needs "! LOL
    Here you go mate:
