    I would leave it untouched. And that is the general advice you will get from most collectors. Key is to stop the moths creating more holes. You can however replace the buttons. That is acceptable.

    I would also post this in the right section of the forum and what ever information you might have on your grandfather. The uniform is great and the guys would love to see it.

    Post it here.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
