    that would be great and give us an early date for a sd tunic without either waistband or change pocket of aug 1918, which it certainly does look 1918, can't clearly see aug, but still earlier than I would expect

    Thanks Jerry. Yes, I see the 1918. And can see - - ā€œgā€. So I assume it is August.
