    Heya, folks!


    Haven't been on in some time and my first post in a while is yet another question (sorry about that!) Some fellow in France is selling this as a WWI Infantry Tunic. I've done some quick digging and can't exactly figure out what this is. Buttons certainly look French but can't tell what era it is or if it's just a modified tunic from somewhere/something else. Any help at all would be appreciated!

    I think it's French and may well be WW1 I'm not an expert but the buttons matches up with my WW2 version ex tunic.

    On the collar could be - judging from what i see, the same flaming grenades as on the buttons.

    It appears to be a pre/early war jacket. If so it I don't believe it is infantry. Infantry should have a red patch on each side of the collar with the regimental identification in blue, as well as each cuff should have a red vertical panel with 3 buttons. Maybe artillery?

    It’s not military.. fire department or postal, perhaps?
    Both often punted as military.
