    James I intended to post these photograph's regarding the gaiters you showed earlier....here's my pair with correct style of ankle boots from the mid 1950's to the mid 1960's, notice the recruit wearing his amongst the others who wear the long marching boot with affenjacke's around 1956. There is often conflicting boot wear in early BW photographs ! CLICK ON THE LINK TO VIEW THE IMAGE................
    Prost ! Steve.

    Here's the moleskin version of the cap.................the "arbeitsmutze".
    The BW gators are actually virtually the same as the gators introduced late in WW2 by the Wehrmacht !
    Prost ! Steve.

    These are great cammo hats/caps, that in my opinion follow the tradition in the German military for such items ! ...and still very inexpensive, every BW collection should have at least two !
    Prost ! Steve.
