DRK hewer portepee
I Once Saw a drk hewer presented by Adrian Stevenson
And on it he had a beautifull repro portepee...
I been Looking High and low to find one, but no luck...
So maybe someone knows where to get such a portepee?
Only Saw one original for sale long time ago..

I have had no luck either acquiring a repro, I have seen 3 or 4 real ones for sale in the past year all around 300 bucks, maybe Ade makes them?? LOL
Likely, they were not worn as they would get in the way of the work they preformed. I have never bought or seen one attached to a veteran acquired hewer. That would be a sizeable number.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
I bought mine from a show many many, years ago now.
I think it originally came from Tom Johnson in the USA.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
I doubt they ever did wear a Portepee or Troddel, not with the dagger nor hewer.

No uniform-plate from the German Red Cross does include them.
In none of the uniform-regulations for the Deutsches Rotes Kreuz it was
either mentioned and if one ever was indeed worn/authorized it would have had
the color red interwoven/included. This red was also visible with the aiguillette and
also the Auszeichnungs-Tresse had red. A brocade was not included in any
of the uniform-regulations!
