Cavalry Reconnaisance Dress Tunic - German Waffenrock
Interesting tunic. There is are no tears or moth nips that I find. What is odd is that it seems there was at one time NCO tress that was removed. Perhaps the poor fellow was demoted for some transgression? There are signs of this on the cuffs and the shoulder boards. It also seems that the bottom fabric on the wearer's left was pulled off and restitched, oddly supporting the thought that this fellow's NCO tress was quite literally ripped off. Certainly some sort of story there. There is also evidence that there at one time were numbers and probably a skull on the shoulder straps.
