    Default Heer Major's summer tunic

    Hello all.
    After a long wait and some trouble i found an untouched tunic that i like!
    The tunic belonged to an infantry Major of the 119th regiment.The previous owner did some research and narrowed down the possible owners to 4 officers.
    The best candidate in my mind is a Major from Stuttgart,who served in Inf.Rgt. 119 (mot) - later Pz.Gren.Rgt. 119
    All of the insignia is machine sewn and original to the tunic,there are award loops for a 6 place ribbon bar,as well as loops for a EK1 on the left and for a DKIG on the right pocket.
    Four holes can be seen as well on the left pocket,possibly for a wound badge and an ISA.
    Overall i'm really happy even with the fact that its a summer tunic and not a winter one(like i wanted in the first place).
    Since this is my very first tunic i would really appreciate all the feedback and comments.
    Thanks!

    Hello,
    This is a decent example of lightweight tunic for Officer. As you say that it's your first tunic and other examples can be seen on the photos, they must be from the seller. Too bad about the damages on the collar and right Litzen. The Hoheitsabzeichen is the type for Waffenrock and has lost its woolen edges...

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply JPhilip,actually the photos are from my collection,the tunics on the sides are Bulgarian once.
    The eagles is the thing i liked the most(apart from the shoulder boards),but i would have liked it more if it had the woolen edges.
    I was looking for a high ranking officer tunic and it wasn't easy to find one!
    P.s. i changed those photos as the new once show the color much better.My future display room is still in renovation,but i managed to take a few quick pictures in there.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
