To be sure, the bulk of Waffen SS caps with the Heereskleiderkasse or Offizierskleiderkasse mark are, of course, butchered items.
But I am addressing the administrative realities of pay and such in war time, which are less straight forward than collector old wives' tales would suggest.
The Richtlinien über die Kreditbestimmungen make me think of the old K. u. K. Armee - the indebted officer (in this case indebted to his tailor(s) and not due to "debts of honour" which was also very frequent) must have been a horror vision of the GröFaZ who might have experienced both such conditions in his Vienna time. These Bestimmungen do still exist today in the Austrian Army as far as I know, there is/was a Bekleidungsbuch in which how many meters of which uniform-fabric, which cap(s) and which amount of money for the tailor (which can not be used for different purposes) can be saved like in a savings book. Officers in Austria still have the right to have their uniforms made to measure. I just wonder where they can find a tailor who can do the job properly. In my home town there aren't many left (if at all).
The problem of debt was a classic one in the officer corps of the old regime.
There is also a Bekleidungszuschuss in the Bundeswehr. The Kleiderkasse der Bw was out sourced in the last decade and went bankrupt in a failed private-public partnership.
Kleider machen Leute!
The green book is the German Army regulation governing pay, allowances, messing, and clothing as well as medical care for the wounded. It is much contained in the black books, which is the administrative handbook of adjutant general corps of the Waffen SS, to use a US Army phrase.
There is no mention of the army clothing counter there in explicit terms.
Well, I had a go, without any guarantee for authenticity (there may be a better equivalent for "Uniformbezugschein" than "coupon for uniforms" and the other Fachvokabel). Feel free to correct me!
