    just perfect gary ,crikey did i supply all those buttons ,well i managed to find the federal eagle and bundesgrenzschutz arc patches from a kind fellow in germany ,ive offered them up to the jacket sleeve flap and it seems a tad to big ,now i can either turn the arc inwards to squeeze it on or fit them to my border guard tunic which needs them as wellAttachment 736604Attachment 736603

    Hi James, hehe thanks mate I bought a couple of 17mm pebbled buttons from ebay to finish it off, I really like the Arch and shield patches great job getting hold of them, annoying my arch is too big too like yours, which again makes me wonder if this size is designed to fit the tunic rather than the Sumpftarn type??

    I think the pairing look good on the tunic mate, perhaps that is the way forward

    arh that explains it gary ,i though i was losing my mind again and thanks for the advice on the patches i will reattach to the green tunic as the original cut stitching matched perfect on the outline and will at least complete one item ,the quest goes on to find the smaller set for the sumpftarn jacket ,perhaps rene' will score a load and see us right

    No worries Mate it's ok your not losing it , I was impressed with the seller as they were super cheap and super quick delivery, which meant I could finish this little project this weekend, ( I have spare 17mm pebbled buttons now if you need some) and yes I think the pairing will look good on the tunic, which of course as you stated will mean still trying to source a set for the Sumpftarn ...hehe, perhaps Rene will that would be very good indeed.

    Hi All, I have managed to pick up a hood for my jacket, by the look's of it I assume is it either a BEPO item or an early BGS item, I base this on the difference in the camo print??

    What do you think, I would value your opinions?

    Regards

    Hi Gary I am away from my laptop and using my phone so no referance material in front of me but IMO not a repo hood from the diffused rain pattern and the overlapping russet on olive green I would say the hood is from a tunic that was produced from approx 1960 to the mid 1960's as this looks like the second pattern of BGS Sumpfmuster to me .

    Regards Mark
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    Thanks for looking and your opinion Mark, I also assume it is an early one. I was reading up on the difference in camo patterns and 60's sounds about right to me, but of course it is always important to get a second opinion so thank you again,much appreciated mate
