I wash my wool shirt in the machine with lots of fabric softener on the gentle cycle, then line dry and stretch it as it dries.

I received this 1899 photo from Dutch Al.


That is an interesting mix of uniforms!  A lot of British 1896, some US 1899 but also a couple of 5 button tunics with lower pockets on them.  The Brits also did blouse/tunic with lower pockets only on it.  I wonder if those are from the Brits also.

I don't know about the British, but the Germans had a khaki tunic for the Seebattalion that only had lower pockets.

The Brits had a few different patterns during the ABW.  I think Rattlesnake Jack posted did a thread on them at one point.
