Article about: I am curious and want to see some types of uniform repairs from the war. Anything from the tiniest shrapnel hole to an elbow patch! Perhaps even some restoration pictures, if you have them?

    Thanks Jphillip! That's an excellent photo! Since they're "mounted" I can only guess what befell him to cause him to need the knee patches . I'm also very pleased to see that my bicycle is so similar to the German wartime ones. I have a blue '79(?) Rawleigh. I suppose they are only stylistically similar, but it's close enough to make me smile!

    Hey Ostmark, Thanks for sharing! Those look almost like a fresh pair of pants besides the knee patch!

    Historyisme, Wow! No kidding. That's like the "extreme makeover" version of a repair. It looks like something outta "Mad Max".

    Surely no-one will buy that thing! It's not even good enough to be a rag!
