Hi all and Happy New Year.!!..I hope you all got into 2014 in good shape. I wanted to show you my LW oberstabsarzt (major), white cap and tunic. The cap I have shown here http://www.historicalwarmilitariaforum.com/topic/552-show-your-luftwaffe-officer-summer-visors/?p=32103 The Tunic is one I aquired years ago; it came with fake sewn on Flak tabs, no boards and a clear attept to sewn-on 2 different types of eagles over the right breast pocket. I removed the fake tabs, and my old mother (she used to be working with clothes in the 50´s) found traces of 3 loops for the eagle. The layout of these are a bit strange anyway, the are not with the same distance, but the 2 close to the middel is close together. My mother restored them with some of my original thread. Over the left pocket the previous owner (or someone else) had put a small bar, ostmedaille, through the cloth. It has left 2 big holes and here my mother again made 2 loops that I have used for the bar you see. This was not original to the tunic but to hide the two mentioned holes. There is no traces that the tunic should have had the "normal" tabs attached with the prym Clip-ons. I have original "Prym´s" and I am considering to apply tabs if I can find the right size. What do you people think about that..?..should I do it or not.?. MY mannequin is nothing special, I apologize. Ofcourse, boards not original to the tunic, but original anyway. I hope you like the setup, comments and request for more pictures are welcome. Hans Kristian Here the eagle in close-up - the residue and traces of sewing is obvious. I did consider the wash the tunic to see if I could make the traces somewhat less obvious, but so far I have not felt this to be tempting. Eagle is unmarked but original. The board..
