    i can't quite see but it looks like both the arms are ripped/ripping (those black marks) but to answer the question this looks to be a early bundeswehr tunic (notice buttons,french style cuffs)

    Hey tom thanks for your reply, firstly those black marks are where the epaulettes were, apparently the buttons have been replaced and here is an example i have found which looks pretty similar to this one,
    Thanks, Glen.

    Hi Tom, not ripped. The shoulder boards are inserted through there. They have a "T" shaped fitting.

    Different type fittings to the one shown by Leander.
