    Default Identify the tunic.

    Hello there. The following photos are from battle of Leros 1943. They show a group of Küstenjägers at Apitiki mountain. My question is simple. What do you think about the one with the "white" tunic. Is it a white drillich tunic (Drillich/Arbeitsbluse) or a tropical one? As far as i know, troops on Leros had a lot of tropical staff (the battle took place on November 1943). In the other hand, Küstenjägers and Brandenburgers used to wear any type of clothes (unissued uniforms, enemy clothes, etc). I have started a project of a German Küstenjäger soldier, and i really want to now your opinion in the type of uniform that i should use.
    Regards,
    Nick

    Probably well faded or bleached tropical, though hard to see the details need to be certain.

    Looking more like what is commonly called Drillich. The work clothing was light-weight and more comfortable in the heat. It came in several colors including green and off white/cream. NH
