    James....BGS stuff is now very collectable...more I think than BW stuff, so if there is money to be made, the fakers will be at work...However as I stated, I do not know about the smock...it was produced and used in the BGS, I am sure I have seen a photo of it in use by a BGS man with a light panzerfaust....I will see if I can find it !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Here we are James....it is described in the photo shot as wearing an apron/zelt, it does indeed look like a zelt to me (note the buttons)..and its not a panzerfaust but a grenade launcher on an FN G1. I also show a BGS trooper in full sumpftarn cammo.....
    Prost ! Steve.

    ive done a little bit of research on the waterproof apron and it looks to be the final 3rd pattern sumpfmuster issued from the mid 1960's up till end of production in 1976
