    Traugott Rahne is a leading military tailor of whom there are today but few and the use of the Waffenfarbe for the lining for Panzer and Recon. (Kavallerie color) is still a custom in the Bw. A very nice piece. The Bw of the epoch 1955-1990, i.e. of the cold war is a thing of historical merit in its own right and very close to my heart, indeed.
    damit, basta.

    Thanks Gentlemen, especially FB's comments....I have several Officers tunics/hats by this tailor, outstanding works indeed ! Here is another black beret, this time a Panzerjager Officer, a branch of the Heer sadly demised some years ago.............this beret not as spectacularly lined (KKBw supplied item) as the previous example ! But is named to a Major Glolig.
    Prost 1 Steve.

    Very nice item, especially as Koblenz no longer is the garrison it once was in its heyday. And, the Bw is scarcely in the Panzer hunting craft any longer, either, along with armor generally, which is today a shadow of its former glory.
    What happy memories do I nourish of the Panzer garrisons especially in Koblenz, which is a wonderful town and so rich in its soldierly past. The Kleiderkasse d. Bw is also gone the way of the buffalo, having been replaced by a contractor.
    damit, basta.

    FB, I was unaware of its demise....but knew of the mothballing of the Panzer arm.....Koblenz, ahhh I spent many a time in that wonderful city in the mid to late 80's, on the “Deutsches Eck” and up at the "Ehrenbreitsten", they were the days !
    A Hearty Prost ! Steve.
