    Early Paratroop formations were part of the Heer and later transfered to the Luftwaffe.

    Heer Paratroop units, such as the Brandenburgers, were wartime raised units and wore Heer insignia.

    This is an early photo. Early grey/green smock, blue ammo bandoleer, early spanner bolt helmet, etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Going back to the scarf is it likely this was from a parachute, still made from silk at that stage.

    Quite possibly when i was in the Army we used old chutes to make all sorts of gear , tracksuits and the like there was quite a trade in them

    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
