Jase, that is a fantastic looking tunic mate, really nice! It has gone to a good home too, I've seen your displays and I know you'll put up a museum quality effort with this one. Having seen this tunic up close I know how good it looks, your a lucky bugger mate, well done!
A very nice tunic Jason!
If my father had served in the AK, I wouldn't mind having one of these myself.
You could look for a PAB and wound badge, or an EK I and PAB. I'm sure there are a few options.
Did you get this one from NZMark?

Good one Jase! Thats a cracker feldbluse.
Glad too to see you back on board - i thought family life and domestic duties had sucked you into their vortex.

Cheers guys! I have missed this place. Thats the trouble with home life, family duties and a job that takes up over 65 hours during the working week.
Thanks for the idea's Ralph. I was thinking EK1 and PAB but then I dont want to add a EK2 ribbon so might just got PAB and wound badge. There also is some loops above the pocket for some ribbons so will do some investigating. I didnt get it off NZMark, it came up at a local militaria swapmeet and was bought by the dealer that I then got this from. Sandgroper was there when the jacket showed up at the swapmeet initally.
I will be selling off some more of my excess militaria to raise some funds to pick up some more stuff assosiated with the feldbluse. The dealer also has and officer's M40 cap with pink piping so I am keen for that plus a tropical officers belt. Cant tell if they all belong together but they did certainly look good as a group
The fact that all these pieces came together as a group gives it a chance that they did all belong together. Even if they didn't they certainly looked great together mate, I hope you can grab them!
Nice tunic! Original, certainly. From the images I do not believe with certainty that all the insignia is wartime applied, though. (Sorry to be that guy)
If you are contemplating taking the officers cap and belt I would ask advice on originality before making any decision - the fakes are good.
A great tunic which will display nicely.
Was hoping you would jump in and reply, being the tropical collector you are. I am still in 2 minds in regards to the cap but would certainly ask to post up pics before a purchase.
Hi Jason, very nice! Thanks for showing it and congrats.
