Together, Cologne and Saarbruecken look thus.
One cannot have one of these black tunics without the shirt, you know.

These shirts are rarer than hen's teeth. Are the fixed collar RZM labeled brown shirts like such appropriate?

Yes, they are. Are those for sale? I am always looking for more. Those are nice ones.
The SS had their own label, but who cares? I don't.

Textiles were rationed with the beginning of the war.
This process resulted in U Bezugscheine, i.e. Uniform ration coupons or chits.
For those of you with no family member living from the era 1939-45, then the idea of rationing must seem quite odd. As as child, I grew up with these stories only to have my own gasoline rationed in 1973.
It is coming again, mind you, too, so enjoy while you can.

Here is the maker of boxes for caps in Saxony, i.e. cartonage, which is an amusing word.
Don't let your collection suffer by having only a square or a round cartonage, but secure both!
