    Congratulations to Mrs Mariusz for choosing a great present
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Just wondering. Is this a US Army Officers pattern service dress jacket? I know some Poles wore US service dress jackets if they could be obtained. I am going by the colour and the small gilt belt buckle.

    I agree, a great present!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you for reply and here is few pictures; the stars look like they have been there for long time. I know it is captains, and it is US, is it from 1943? Is there more to know about it? Who would own it?

    Ok, what you have is a US Army Officers tunic, made in Great Britain, but purchased and worn by a Polish offcier.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you for all your help, I really like my Christmas present. My wife surprise me with that Captain tunic. Especially it is my first tunic. I hope she will have more luck finding presents like that

    Ade, good spot with the US pattern! On first glance it puzzled me.

    Mariusz, Nice gift! Thanks for sharing it with us. As I've said to you before, you married well!

    Cheers,
