    The uniform as such (tunic, pants, cap) is a post war uniform of the German Red Cross. (Note, for example, the lack of shoulder boards and the concealed button front on the tunic, the cap badge etc.)

    Don't know about the armband, but I would guess it is a repo. It's definitely not original to the tunic.

    See here for a more modern version of this type of cap: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/cloth-...-2/#post224419

    In my humble opinion I think it is post war Glen. I am not really an expert on these.
    The upper lapel is usually a smooth felt type of wool material.
    The buttons that I have seen on originals are normaly pebbled plain aluminium.
    The round DRK patch is not WWII.
    I think the armband is new.
    The cap most certainly is post war.
    I could be wrong but I do not think the uniform is a WWII piece.
