    Default Removing the insignia from the ww2 Brit SD tunics

    Good evening mates!Ι have noticed that some ww2 dated british SD tunics has all their insignia removed expect the buttons.I am very curious why this was happened!?!?Also I was told that wartime SD tunics were sometimes rebadged for another officer post-war,as the tunics changed hands many times!Is that possible?Many Thanks for your time and help!

    The collar badges can be quite pricey and are often removed by badge collectors as the badges are easier to store and display than the tunics are.

    It is likely that officers tunics would change owners as they would be quite expensive to have them made, though I have never seen any evidence of this and they would probably have to have them tailored to fit the new owner.

    Picture officer saying, "Just ordered an un-badged Service Dress from G & H, thought I would transfer the insignia from my old tunic. Waste not, eh? Anyway, the old MG needs a new windshield after Friday night's little mishap."

    Another good scenario that would fit.
