I have a new panzer tunic good to go.
is there a manual for placement of badges, eagles,, rank, collartabs or cufftitles.

modern day army "Australia" we have placement for everything and images upon images for it.
just seeing if theirs a German ww2 one as I have a tank destruction badge, cufftitle and officer eagle to put on my new kit.

Gday, about a weeks worth of research I have got the placement

its 14cm on the arm for the cuff, if its a wrapper its above the cut in the sleeve about 1cm above that.

the eagle is center about in line with pocket lining, if panzer wrapper inline with edge of collar bend point.

I will post pictures if anyones keen, still looking for an official guide.
also if your going to sew with in a tank destruction badge get a thimble and silver thread takes forever to do, most badges come with a green back lining take that off makes it easier to put the needle through.
