    Gents...four more caps to the collection, one 1961 dated field cap (M43 style) originally part of the herring bone work uniform, but it seems worn at most times on exercise etc...and three more berets, late Fallschirmjagertruppe, Heeresfliegertruppe (army air corps) and Feldjagertruppe (Military Police)......
    Prost ! Steve.

    Nice pickup Steve the early herringbone twill variation of the M43 is an awsome piece looks to be unworn condition .
    I must admit it is the first one I have seen with the use of this type of fabric .

    Mark...it has taken me some time to track one down, it was a lucky find at $5 ! and $4 post to U.K. from the States......I think there was a moleskin type as well.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Were the herring bone twill work uniforms standard issue in the BW I have yet to see any come up for sale here on Ebay or in the surplus stores.

    Mark, I believe they were issued in 1959 as a purely work uniform, they rarely come onto the market, they look like and are considered the forerunner of the moleskin uniform, they are easily identifiable as they lack any insignia, even the national flags are not attached...there was a set on e-bay Germany last month, but they went for silly money....as a note, the moleskin uniform (like its predecessor) was also to be a fatigue uniform, but both were worn in and around the garrison and on exercise, preferred by the soldiers to the "Filzlaus" tunic ! which was gradually phased out in favour of the moleskin uniform.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Another two for the collection arrived this morning...two black berets, first a 1995 dated rare "Heeresaufklarar" (Army intelligence) beret..they operate the pilotless drones and collate intelligence rather the the wearer of the second beret is a 1989 dated black beret of the "Panzeraufklara" (Armoured Reccon) who performed duties rather like a scout in the U.S. Army.....
    Prost ! Steve.

    Hi all
    Finally got round to posting up my early BW feldmutze M56 this one seems to be more blue than dark grey.. it came in a job lot with my 1960's officer visor

    Bundeswehr peaked caps.

    that one had the incorrect insignia (now replaced) .. wonder if this is the same!!
