WWII British Made SHAEF General's Aide Tunic with Cap
A belted, four pocket, World War II U.S. Army officer uniform tunic worn by the military aide to a Brigadier General at Supreme Allied Headquarters. The tunic has no tags or labels but the material and tailoring reflect classic British manufacture. The left shoulder bears a British made SHAEF wool patch, while the lower left sleeve carries British made wool overseas service stripes. The lapels show beautiful insignia for the aide to a Brigadier General, these being the scarcer design with the eagles' wings "clipping" the corners of the shields. These insignia have the "snowflake" pattern backs of Amcraft, and are secured with Phinney clutch fasteners. The "U.S." lapel insignia and the Captain's rank insignia are all pin back. The tunic has a few minor "pulls" to the fabric in spots but these are quite minor. One front button has come off of the tunic but that is present in the pocket. The tunic is accompanied by the officer's overseas cap with Captain's rank insignia. Overall very good condition.
