    For the most part they would wear standard German issue kit with no differences. Or former Soviet kit.

    There was however, one special uniform made for Osttruppen. It was a grey/blue shade. Made from old stocks of French made cloth. I have only ever seen a couple. It was a hybrid German + Soviet Gym style of tunic with trousers.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Very interesting Frei.
    It is never to late to recieve an important answer. I would love to see some detailed photos of these pants.

    I am only focusing on this "Eastern Volunteer" part of the ww2 history, so every detail i can study is highly valued for me.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
