    Ever seen a set of these before Steve? Bundeswehr issue Pyjamas!
    I have Ade ! even these sometimes crop up on E-Bay ! it appears that the BW issued nearly every item of clothing to its recruits, I have just aquirred "Lothar Schusters" new book on uniforms and equipment of the BW 1955-2010, the amount of personal gear issued is IMO astounding ! perhaps a ex-British squaddie can inform us if it was the same in the British Army.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Ade, worn since mid 70's to the mid 90's, women (until a 2000 ruling) only ever served in the medical services....the uniform changed to this.....note, no breast pockets.
    Prost ! Steve.
    p.s. The matching hat to the uniform you show is ultra rare, I have never seen one for sale, it is pill box style like an airline stewardess hat....the beret came later.
