Unclegrumpy, read the post from the link you gave and I would just leave it but it is getting stiff and don't want it to start cracking. I have it hanging on a wide shoulder hanger and think I need to slightly stuff the sleeves because they are starting to crease. Before I do anything I will contact several people one being, Shenkursk and get some additional advice. My youngest is a big history buff (like my husband) and understands the history of the jacket and knows it's not for wearing. I can't imagine someone wearing it and then losing it. As far as the name patch, if there was one it was stolen along with some of his medals and other items when his house was broken into 20+ years ago. But there isn't any markings on the jacket like there was another patch or name tag on it. But I will ask him when we have lunch later this month.
