Colonel of air force
M1969 daily uniform with overcoat

Daily dress uniform of colonel of the Soviet air force, dating from the late 1980s. The uniform is a standard officers style daily attire with the corresponding overcoat for autumn and spring use.

The shoulder boards have sky piping which is also found along the legs of the trousers and the band of the cap - as well as the collar tabs which carry the aviation insignia. This uniform is however especially interesting by the fact that the shoulder boards have embroidered stars on both the tunic and the coat, an exclusive feature which was technically not supported by the regulations but was available as an optional feature from the Voentorg tailor stores. The rank of colonel is indicated by the three large stars on each shoulder. All front buttons are present and carry the hammer and sickle in a star and the buttons are dated 88. On the wearers left is a sewn on ribbon bar including both Order of Alexander Nevsky, Order of the Great Patriotic War II class, Order of the Red Star, Order for Service to Socialist Motherland III class, medal for defense of Stalingrad and numerous anniversary and jubilee awards - and three Czechoslovak awards. On the wearers right is a graduation badge from the Zhukovsky Aviation Engineering academy.

The size of the uniform is 52 and the visor cap is size 58. Both are in good, worn condition without damages beyond what can be expected from daily wear. The cap is a nice late Soviet era visor cap dating from the mid 1980s when the golden cord was introduced to be worn on the daily service caps. The cap is manufactured by 43TsePK and is in very good shape, although the manufacturer mark on the sweatshield has worn off. The uniform comes with the mentioned overcoat as well. The uniform comes with trousers for wear with shoes.
