    Default White summer dress jacket.

    Hi
    Can someone ID this jacket please? And is it postwar or WWII? It is fine work. Collar hooks are really fine and looks like made from a thin wire not used ready made factory hooks. There is no holes for the shoulder board buttons.
    Regards

    Thank you gents. I could not find any reference what is the difference between the army and a railway summer jacket? Is it just the buttons? And as I have understood and read did the technical/engineers/ troops wore also same buttons/insignia with a hammer and wrench?

    There is no difference IMO, in cut and fabric type - except after 1955 where the Kitel for Ministry of Communications (this includes Railways) - changed to a lay down collar with tabs (shoulder-boards were abolished as per an order during this year).

    The hammer/wrench buttons were designated for Railways. It is simple perception that such a symbol was for Army/Fleet - Technical/Engineering as it was the same design as the cyphers on collar tabs during 1920 - 30X and on shoulder-boards from 1943.

    Hi
    So would this be a legit move? Since I do not collect ticket inspectors and mailman etc. thought to transform this into an army tunic. Would need a better boards since these are knackered. Are these junior lieutenant of infantry or artillery?

    Regards

    I am unable to tell the colour of the shoulder-boards - at least on my monitor with my lousy vision. See if you can get close-up images.

    Your opinion of the NKPS is wrong, in more than one circumstance they fought as frontline troops. They were very vital to the war effort, imagine the scale of their job when they transferred all the troops and material from the West in 1945 to Mongolia. To change the identity of a tunic would not be doing justice to the heroes of the NKPS.
    Here is a poster showing your tunic.
