    Mark, both items are as you state, Bundeswehr....the "Y" straps (dated july 1971) being used throughout the 70's/80's upto around 1990, when the current webbing set began to be issued...attached photograph shows them in wear in 1990, by a Panzergrenadier operating a "MILAN" launcher, on excercise "Iron Hammer" in Germany. The cap is the generic BW winter cap (dated 1975), available for some decades know, in olive green or in more modern times Flecktarn cammo, they are unusual in that they do not sport a badge of any kind ! Thanks for showing, hope to see you in this section more often !
    Prost ! Steve.
