    Hello Jay,
    concening the photo posted in the post 59, it's very hard to give a date to this knid of photo. They wear what look like Feldmützen Alte art, but they could be Schirmmützen with the inner spring and chinstrap removed as well...the Zeltbahnen seem to have aluminium fittings and buttons which may indicate an early date, but they're officers who didn't use as much their Zeltbahnen as soldiers, so they lasted more...maybe they drink wine...

    Concerning the photo in post 60, they're wearing the smock of the first type, with Splinter pattern camouflage and without hood...The Grossdeutschland Division made it famous but it was a general issue item, not specifically dedicated to them.
    Nice photo
    Thanks

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
