Great looking uniform and photo! Would you mind taking some detailed shots of the insignia and the ribbons? Oh, and a close-up of the hat as well? Glad it is still in the family!

Closeups

This is not the same uniform that he is wearing in the picture. His first uniform was stolen.

Do you mean stolen during the war or after the war?
