    That looks very nice, I must say. Good luck with the shoulder boards.
    I was reading Uniforms of the Waffen SS part 2 by M Beaver. In this book he states it was common to have Wehrmacht type boards on these white tunics. Best of luck finding a sleeve eagle too.

Size:  109.7 KBMany thanks, will post some more once I have the pieces. I'm sure it will take some time to find. I'm going to try and fashion mine, like the one worn by Max Wunsche here.

    I had a military style LAH white tunic in the 1970s, of a doctor in the LAH and all the insignia was simply tacked on very loosely.

    None of these high tech insignia, nor clips et cetera.

    Jenkins is a very energetic ferret in old German collections, that is, in places that seldom see the light of day in the English speaking world.
    damit, basta.

    haha, many thanks FB. I hear you, it will be hard to find, so if I have to resort to tacking, etc., I will do so. It may be that I will have to find a nice officer's sleeve eagle and affix the snap backings for it to attach to the tunic. Hopefully the slip on boards for Obersturmfuhrer LAH will not take too long to find. If anyone has a nice pair, please send me a PM. At the end of the day, I'm very happy though to have found the screw back collar tabs though, I think they look really nice with it!

    Man! I really am liking that addition of the SS screwback Collar tabs. In my opinion a LAH cufftitle would be a stellar addition when you get to CT's, or even a Germania.

    That's a nice uniform study. The other three are Albert Speer, Dr. Karl Brandt and Walter Hewel.

    Many thanks. I agree regarding the LAH cuff title. Here is another of Wunsche with the LAH cuff. Just super.

    Gents,

    Just posting an update. Got a beautiful period original eagle with snaps and white backing from a member on WAF. Also purchased a nice pair of Obersturm. shoulderboards. Next on the list is an early LAH CT, and also looking for a pair of officer LAH cyphers. If anyone has a pair, or knows someone who may sell, please send me a note. Here are some updated photos. Very best, Scott
