BEAUTIFUL EARLY THIRD REICH ARTILLERY OFFICERS PARADE TUNIC. NAMED AND DATED.From the same source as the NCO's tunic, this is a beautifully made and preserved Officers Waffenrock Parade tunic. All Waffenfarbe is in red for artillery, and the epaulettes have the gilt rank insignia for a Hauptman (Captain) along with the numbers 72. This is an officer 4 pocket tunic and beautifully tailored. The early type silver bullion breast eagle is a work of art in itself. Such workmanship and high quality. Tunic is fully lined, with clear evidence of actual wear over a period of time. On the inside right pocket is the original tailor label from 'Uniform Fritsch' in Dresden. It has the original owners name in ink along with the 1930's date!!! Tunic has medal loops for one award on the left breast (probably an Iron Cross) and above the pocket is an original 5 medal ribbon bar. (WW1 EK2, Hindenburg Cross with swords, Westwall etc etc) This is a real stunner of a tunic, no damage at all, no moth nips etc. Whist it has been used and worn, it's in mint condition. Looks amazing.

EARLY THIRD REICH 'WAFFENROCK' PARADE TUNIC FOR SENIOR ARTILLERY SERGEANT.A marvellous example of a very high quality parade Waffenrock tunic for a Senior Wachtmeister NCO of the Artillery. With much silver tress ribbon on the collars and cuffs, these tunics look better than the Officers ones in my opinion. This tunic is in really great condition, has obvious evidence of having been worn with some staining to the lining under the arms and wear to the edge of the cuff lining. Beautifully made in heavy green serge wool. The silver rank tress ribbon runs around the top of the collar etc, whch designates this as an early tunic, pre-1936, as after this time the silver tress ran along the bottom of the tunic collar. Waffenfarbe is red for the artillery and this is evident all over the runic, collar patches, epaulettes, tunic trim and cuffs etc. The original silver bullion national eagle is sewn to the right breast and is of superior (officer) quality. Senior Sergeant Major rank identification badge on right sleeve bordered in silver wire. On the right sleeve is the specialist badge for a 'gun layer'. This is a SUPERIOR tunic in every way, totally untouched and a real piece of history. (tunics are hard to photograph and we have limited space here, I can send much better, detailed pictures upon request)

Hindustani Manual belonging to Major Norman Adam KIALeather bound ' Forbes's Hindustani Manual ' with a poignant inscription from the mother of Major Norman Macleod Adam killed in action 28/08/18.

This story is written in pencil by his mother to the inside cover of the manual. Adam was the son of Maj.Gen.F.A.Adam. Unusual and poignant.
