    Default Heer NCO's summer weight feldbluse

    Hi Guys, this is a favourite item from my collection.

    The German Army allowed Officers and NCO's a certain amount of latitude when it came to uniforms. Contary to popular beleif the Heer was not the rigid regulation bound "by the book" organisation that people think. I often look at period photos and think that the British Army would never have allowed that!

    Here we have a tailor made uniform for a senoir NCO. The most interesting aspect is that the material used for the bluse is furnished from a captured Soviet Red Army rain cape, the "Plash-Palatka". This was a popular source of lightweight cotton water repellent cloth.



    The bluse has "French Cuffs" usually reserved for Officers, but again a senior NCO could get away with it. Note the cut to the back of the jacket, this follows the early 1930's Reichwehr style. The collar litzen are white waffenfarbe for a Infantryman. Note the pre war pattern "Feldbluse" style shoulder straps. These once displayed numerials but these have been removed in order to comply with the regulations.

    The size of this bluse is tiny. A friend's son aged 12 tried it on and it was made to measure for him.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Darrell, this was actually made for field wear, unlike the white pre war summer dress uniform worn for walking out etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Raymond, small sizes are very common. What we have to remember is the diet eaten by youngster growing up in the years before WW2 was poor compared to todays standards. As a result people were just not as big as they are today.

    This was the same in any country. I also collect British and Soviet and the sizes are reflected in those uniforms too.

    Cheers, Ade.
