    Yes, that is the problem. The only way that I know to make them smaller is the crop them. And that normaly did the trick on wehrmacht-awards.com.

    I am going to try to make them smaller so I can post them here too.

    Thank you

    No probs Rajko. I'll resize them and will then upload to your first post above in the next 10 minutes

    Okay, all pics are now up.



    The straps are correct for the triangle which is good and the stitching and wear look to be consistent with the age. The armband has the narrow white band you often see on the earlier armbands so I personally like what I see. I'm no expert on shirts though so I will defer to a more experienced collector who will be able to say whether the insignia may have been put on this shirt post-war.

    These pattern of buttons were used mainly from the period 1929 to 1932 , After that there were guidelines to follow on insignia and uniform manfacture .
    After 1932 the buttons should have the HJ - DJ imprinted on them . But with all regulations , there is always the exception .

    So that means that they could be original to he shirt. The story is that this shirt came from a lady, whose dad was in HJ. And it was bought about 4 years ago. The guy who bought it, is not a collector, so I do not think he would know where to get a buttons for this shirt. So now after all this information I am sure that this is unmessed shirt. Thank you guys for all your help.
