    Default Polish Officer's tunic - 2nd Lieutenant

    Hello Emil,

    The tunic looks to me like a pre-war example or made by a tailor to pre-war standards with exile insignia sewn on, maybe the officer sewed on his present insignia on to his pre-war tunic, also I see an interesting medal ribbon bar. Is it a field issue (rough wool) or smooth ribbed garbadine, dress issue ? I see it has pre-war or exile buttons.

    Default Polish Officer's Tunic - 2nd Ltnt

    Hello Emil,

    Further to my last answer, I think I saw a thread on another forum describing these patches as meaning a signaller attached to a armoured unit.

    Hello everybody

    very happy to join you all in this interesting forum.

    I would like to ask anyone knows much about VMs

    there is this 3d class for sale on Polish Allegro.

    But in research on VMs issued I see no number 161 awarded to anyone. Is it really possible that there is a 3rd class pre war VM
    floating around without ever being issued?'

    Hello Stanislaw,

    Welcome to the forum!

    Yes, there were surplus unawarded 3rd Class VM’s that have found their way onto the market. The one you have pictured is a genuine pre-WW2 Krupski i Matulewicz made cross mounted to original issue Swiss made ribbon. I don’t have the award statistics with me at the moment, but from memory there were something in the order of only two dozen actually awarded during the IIRP period. I believe upwards of 175 were made. Again, I’d need to check my references to confirm.

    I am watching this auction too!

    Regards,
    Tony

    Good news and bad news. Spinner bad, badge good. These are very common and not yet worth making copies of.
