What rank are you looking at portraying? If you are dead set on wearing the Kreta cufftitle you might like to think about get some Dienstgradwinkeln or Tresse up as well. (Very rare for a Crete vet not to be bumped up in rank after the event)

Also,when you have your photo taken, make sure your Bluse is pulled around and in at the back so you don't get nasty creases in the front and sides :D

I was thinking of Unterofizer, and geting a cloth FJ patch instead of a metal one.

I'd suggest getting your blouse tailored or at least altered.

It looks a bit big on you, also german uniforms were cut to be high on the wrist to make the wearer look taller (thats the case with normal tunics and i'm pretty sure it the same with the luftwaffe) whereas yours seem to cover a bit of your hands.

Its a *little* thing but it wont cost you much and makes a lot of difference IMO. While combat uniforms (especially late war) might be less well fitting the unit tailor would normally take in things like your best tunic (you're wearing it with a visor cap so i'm assuming it's your 'best' /walking out look).

It would look better if it were fastened correctly. Do another button up.
