    Hi René, thanks for sharing this tunic with us. This is not a subject I know much about? But I know the branch of service for this one would be the Artillery as shown by the crossed cannons on the buttons. Would the woven number tapes in the neck be his service number? Are these re-searchable?

    Cheers, Ade.

    No problem
    I do not know much on this also!
    I figured that the numbers were the size of the tunic?

    Thanks for looking

    Hi René, ah, size markings. Could be? I said I did not know much about these either

    Do the numbers correspond to measurements of the tunic?

    Cheers, Ade.

    They are definitely size size numbers as they correspond.
