    Default How to decorate this Heer Artillerie Hauptmann's tunic?

    When I picked up this Heer Artillerie Hauptmann tunic (one of two, the other a Heer Gefreiter with a signals patch), quite by accident and I thought I was done collecting... I figured I'd sell or trade this one off to help pay for the other, but of course the beautiful Artillerie tunic tugged at my sleeve to keep it, so flashy with all the red piping.

    So, it's got all these pocket loops, I assume one would be for an EK1? Bought one the other day, something happened (sold on two different sites at the same time), didn't get it.

    Where I'm confused, and I admittedly know next to squat about insignia and decorations is this. If he's Artillerie, can he have a general assault badge, or a close combat badge? Or maybe the two side by side loops are for a ribbon bar? Or would it be a Flak badge, and is there more than one form of these, besides grade, suitable for this tunic?

    I guess beyond an EK and a wound badge, I'm not sure what to put on this guy, but his pocket loops are very empty and calling for something ;-)

    He could have an ASA or NKS. Stewy

    Also he could have a Heer flak. Stewy

    The ASA would be the most common.Pioneers, artillery, sturmartillerie all received ASA's. Although towards the end of the war Sturmartillerie were awarded PKA's I believe. Stewy

    All grades of NKS were available to artillery. ASA & Heer flak only have one grade, although ASA 25, 50 etc could also be an option. Stewy

    ASA being the Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen, and NKS Nahkampfspange, correct?

    If it was mine I'd put the tombak gold NKS on it from Ratisbons last auction. Stewy
