I love the silver bullion work on this eagle !
My question : Can anyone tell me the issue date of these tunics and how long the were used or what date was the end wear date of this style of tunics ??????

Oustanding tunics thumbsup



Doug, the tunics in the configuration you have would have been worn from 1970 - 2005.

That configuration consists of the BGS Tab and Federal Eagle.

The tunic in post 148 appears to be identical in design to the army wool tunic worn in the 70s except in a different material. Do you know when this tunic was adopted by the BGS and how long was it worn?

I'd like to say I have a strong background in uniforms, but my primamry focus has been on insignia, with only a rudimentary foundation in uniform styles.

I'll try to do some research and get back to you if I find anything specific out.


EDIT - Gordon I sent a new PM. I screwed up my email addy in the original PM to you.
Getting old and senile I guess.

Thanks. Looking forward to your response. I'll have to go through my reference material when I get home in early September and see what I can find.
I tried to respond to your PM with an email and it came back as "non-deliverable". I beleive that I have enabled email contact in my profile so you could send me the chart that way.
