    Hello.

    I am looking to buy a certain BW tunic that has markings ''Heereseigentum, 92 / IV'' on it.

    What do the numbers and letters ''92 / IV'' mean? Could it be a size marking? 92cm chest size perhaps, but what does the IV mean?

    I may well be mistaken here and will gladly stand corrected, but I think it is the year and month of manufacture.

    "Heereseigentum" means "army property".

    I have tried to research this but I can't figure out what this tunic is supposed to be. Any help?

    That, colleague, is an Austrian army tunic.

    One distinguishes between Bundeswehr of the FRG and the Bundesheer in Austria. The air force in Austria wears essentially a similar uniform.

    The Austrians did or did not, more or less, retain field grey in 1955-6, whereas the Bundeswehr Waffenrock is a slate grey. The first Bw uniform was very dark grey, and changed ca. 1957 or so.

    I have seen these truths with my own beady eyes.

    Thank you for posting all the great, illustrative images. I had my doubts whether it was German at all.
