Bundeswehr in Afghanistan..ISAF

Article about: Gents, Little or none of Germany's involvement in ISAF has discussed or debated here on this section, as it was an ongoing "War" it was rather an emotive and sensitive subject, but

    Terry, I take it this is the device you mention........"British Army Issue: Guardian Mockingbird IR (Infrared) Signal Light" and "glit tape" I take it is just chromium sticky back tape off a roll ?
    Prost ! Steve.

    Thats the stuff Steve..Normally the Mocking bird would be attached to a helmet rather than a cap..because you wouldn't wear a cap in combat...& the glit tape is off a roll & you can place where ever you want???. Cheers Terry.

    Short answer: No.



    Telling everyone that he is the commander of the Georgian contingent?
    Don't be mean to the Georgians, they have shed much blood in AFG and are there through the support of the USMC. Georgia is another special affection of mine.

    Thanks for the Bw in ISAF emphasis. A worthy theme. I have many friends who have served there.

    Apologies if that is how it came across. No offense was intended.

    Thank you, Andreas. I know that you meant no offense.

    Such is the misery of war that it engenders bad feeling in all directions and across the gulf of time.

    As I mentioned in post 1 of this thread during the BW time in the region many troops purchased their own gear wether it be uniform or equipment, such as Molle, Tac gear, Leo Kohler to name a few....
    I have just obtained a "TACGEAR" Kommando Feldbluse....in Wusterntarn, superior quality than the issue feldbluse, in every respect, construction, extra pockets, attached "soft" velcro patches for insignia, heavy duty large buttons for ease of opening with gloved hands ! slanted chest pockets and of course unlike the issue bluse made of "rip stop" material. It has a velcro fastened high collar and extended sleeve end feature to cover wrist/glove seperation, notice provision for "follow me" glit patch on back............all in all a very good piece of kit ! Photos taken with and with out flash, hence colour difference !
    Now for that "Leo Kohler" combat shirt !
    Prost ! Steve.

    James, great images, indeed combinations seen in the ISAF German contingent include issue and private purchase uniform items in oliv/flecktarn and wustentarn !
    This stuff is now filtering through to surplus dealers now the BW have pulled out...expect a deluge of items coming up for sale in the coming year !
    Prost ! Steve.
