I have aquired this tunic not long ago, and I REALLY need some sound advice on how to improve and take care of this..and I am not expert by any standard..
I read a thread on washing or not, and I learned many things from that..but this is a garbadine tunic, and I cannot see this beeing washed, no matter how..?..or am I wrong. I could not find any advice here on cleaning garbadine tunics, if it exsist, please let me know.
Is dry-cleaning the only solution for this tunic..?. As all can see, the tunic is really in need of a good cleaning..if possible..
Next, I "need" to convert this infanterie hauptmann to an Arzt, medical branch. I have ofcourse all the right insigna for this. But how will this be considered..?..ruining the tunic or just converting .?..or is the best conservation just to apply the infanterie collar patches..?..
I am very interested in opinion on this topic..
Alright, here is the pictures..
Adler..(was in the pocket..!!!!..
)..Unfortunately the swastika is almost ruined..
Badge loops..these I know how to repair, from the excellent thread here..thanks..!!..
Ofcourse I need to say that there are NO markings inside whatsoever..
Thanks for looking..!!
