    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I have some hundred of forestry photos of practically all branches in perfect condition,
    but they are "on embargo" for volume 7 of the headgear-series, which is in the stage
    of writing. Otherwise I would show some.
    Many show the wearing of all kinds of buckles. I have at hand practically all uniform-
    regulations about forestry-organizations from the Weimar-period up through the
    end of the war, including for army and Luftwaffe!

    Interesting information thanks for posting. I am surprised there isn't anything about brown belts. The brown belt I have with the burnished buckle has the green snaps and is backed in green material. Were brown belts used post war? The Hessen and Baden has the buckle attached to the belt. It is also green backed. It was the first round buckle I ever bought.

    Could it be that brown belts were dyed green and then lost the color ? I know there were green holsters for foresters as well.

    I checked it again. I do not know if I have overlooked something.
    Not with regular forestry brown was worn, but with an order from January 1, 1943 brown was
    mentioned for forestry persons, not being German in the Generalgouvernement. Nothing was said
    about a buckle (what form). It could be they took over German buckles. That is a possibility!

    The note was taken from the magazine "Deutsche Uniformen-Zeitschrift", nr. 8 from August 1944.
    The article included a photo, but with the uniform no belt was worn.

    Thanks for your additional thoughts. I am far more interested in buckles than belts but I seem to find a lot of Forestry sets.

    Interesting info about brown belts for Polish foresters in GG - i assume they probably used Polish belts with buckles aka officer type belts of pre-war type.
