    Another quick question about this piece... Burn test resulted in white smoke but I had to put out the flame with my finger leaving ash residue all over my hand. I'm used to these items burning themselves out then having the resulting ash blowing away easily.

    Also, I know service men tend to have rather big arms but the diameter on this piece is 6 inches! I cannot even find a friend of mine who can wear this properly. I'm assuming it was worn over a thick winter jacket *shrugs*

    It could have been worn over an SA shirt....I also think the armband is OK...looks to be three piece construction....sounds like the burn test worked. I take it the thread went "poof" when you lit it? Should go very quickly! Any chance you can make out what the stamp says on the front?
    Cheers!

    I tried my hardest to decipher what it says but I can only make out a few letters here and there
