    Default completed waffenrock

    My lanyard arrived this morning so my waffenrock is now complete! Anyone know more details bout the lanyard? I thinks it's for the 3rd grade of marksmanship? Many thanks. Jay

    Hi Jay

    You're correct in your assumption that the lanyard is 3rd grade, (original qualification + 2 requal's as shown by the two acorns)
    This is an EARLY version, identified by the style of plaque at the shoulder strap end.
    They were originally introduced in 1936, to be worn by all qualifying ranks below officer rank when in parade, reporting, walking-out and guard uniforms, but NOT on the greatcoat.

    Hope that this is of some help.

    Regards etc

    PS: If you can get hold of a copy, a good reference book is:

    German Army Uniforms and Insignia 1933 - 1945
    by Brian L Davis

    You may have to hunt around for a copy because it is long out of print.

    LondonJay, thats a fine looking 'Waffenrock', I especially like thes tunics as they are a direct decendant of the Imperial Dunkelblau Waffenrock....the traditional dress/service tunic of the 'old' army. Should the EKII ribbon be displayed twice ?, once on the buttonhole, the other on a ribbon bar......I thought that was against regs, I am sure someone will be able to tell us...Both jimpy and shadowwolf are correct about the book, regarded as the 'Bible', i still have mine, and still use it 36 years after buying it !

    Hi Jay, it looks excellent.

    Steve is correct: display of the EKII ribbon and repeating it again on the ribbon bar was against regulations. But seen despite that.

    The book is still the "Bible" and a must have.

    Cheers, Ade.
