    Again a good example of a converted Dutch jacket.
    German collar and without german lower pockets. Nice jacket !!
    Guess the original dutch markings are still inside ;
    ''CM'' (centraal magazijn) and production year for example ''39'' for 1939.

    Thanks for posting your pictures, always nice to see that there are more eastern volunteers collectors. We all can learn from each other.
    Your jacket have both the dutch markings and the ''new'' german stamp.

    Here are some pictures of the cossack hat (remember the man with his horse );
    Have to be careful with it cause some parts of the wool lets loose as you can see on the pictures.

    Edit : The emblem on the front is made of a red cloth and a blue painted german button.

    Fantastic Kubanka. I have not seen the "painted button" before- another wonderful proof that they used whatever they had to customize their uniforms.
    To bad not more Volunteer jackets and other uniform parts has been saved for us to learn from.

    Where did you find this cap?

    Thanks, I still have some other odd things in my collection, will post them later on.
    I am not sure anymore where I found this Kubanka, I believe I found it on a military fair in Holland. I have it for .... years, don't even now for how long.

    There you have a fantastic piece (Don Ushanka). That again I have never seen. It seems it is made from a basic german winterhat.
    I have a similar german winter had with rabbit fur, but without cossack colors or black wool. Just a standard german cap which in some cases where also worn by eastern volunteers.

    That's right. On paper the cossacks where part of the ROA, we speak then about march/april 1945.
    Some cossacks served in the ROA, there are more pictures where cossack also wears the ROA armshield.
