1945 dated RAF tropical shirt

Article about: Picked up this on Saturday at the local vintage fair, not in too bad condition but all the external insignia has been picked off, would it be worth my while replacing the insigna or leaving

    Thanks all !, have carefully removed all the loose thread from where the badges were sewn and just pressed the area with a warm iron so there not too visible now, I wonder if the two holes above the breast pocket would be there from original, they seem well done and are edged with cotton that seems to match the original on the button holes,
    cheers,
    John.

    Could the holes be for mounted medal ribbons?

    Thanks Gary, that's the thought I was having, I actually have some original mounted ribbons that came with a Burma star group to a local man who served in the RAF !, I was thinking about putting them on just to display,
    John.
