2nd republic greater Polish soviet war post wwi pre ww2 Pilsudski army tunic 42
Up for sale today is a one of a kind, excellent quality, ! Customized reproduction see: HISTORICAL COPY! Of a Polish army tunic from after WWI. This was of course, before the Polish army had standardized their own production of uniforms and was using leftovers from their former colonial occupiers. One such perfect example was the Polish Army’s use of former German imperial uniforms from wwi, especially by the Polish insurgents in the Greater Poland province during and after the Uprising of Greater Poland. The Polish soldiers went to great lengths to make these uniforms look uniquely Polish and over time, added extensive, sometimes extravagant modifications to set them apart from the Germanic uniform designs. Some of these included the removal of German shoulder straps (and eventually production of uniquely Polish ones), the removal of German Buttons and replacement with uniquely Polish buttons, the removal of the barrel cuffs on the sleeves of the jacket, the removal of the badge cloth collar and replacement with a standing collar. As such, this tunic is a very faithful reproduction of these early Polish uniforms as it started out life as a German tunic before being converted to Polish specifications with many of these features. This tunic after these modifications is also quite similar to interwar Yugoslav tunics and could potentially be modified for use for those re-enactments. The chest size is a 42.
