    Nice set of Greek items pretty rare items really Greek collasped pretty fast once German invaded they still had a resistance movement old movie Guns of Navarone is based on this and German occupation. I often wonder where most of Greek items are maybe used post war? Some of it comes up from time to time here in the States but is usually priced pretty high so they must be rare items. Thanks for showing. timothy

    I have had that same kepi in my collection for over 15 years and never knew what country it was from. Glad you put it on here. Everyone kept telling me it was Swedish.

    The uniform items used by the greek army during the Italian and German invasion continued to be in use during the occupation years by the army in exile and the resistance movement untill they were destroyed in the harsch conditions of the north african desert and the greek mountains, in the early post war years only some servise dress uniforms were continued to be in use by some officers that's the reason of their rarity. You are welcome timothy!
