    Just picked these up today from an estate sale. The boys in the photos look to be in tropical uniforms. Thoughts on this would be appreciated.

    Hi Jeff, in the photo on the left the trooper wears puttees and mountain boots and the conventional Heer M40 woolen blouse. There is a very slim chance he might be a Mountain trooper, although he lacks the Edelweiss sleeve insignia. I think he does wear the Bergmutze due to the high crown as opposed to the Einheitsfeldmutze.

    The right photo does indeed show the Heer tropical uniform. Nice portrait shot in newly issued kit.

    Cheers, Ade.
