    Default infantry waffenrock

    Hi there, the button on the shoulder boards of my waffenrock has the number '11' on it, does that mean its from the 11th infantry division please? If so does anyone know where they were fighting in ww2 please? Many thanks for your time

    LondonJay, a throw back to Imperial days, as is the 'Waffenrock'....the buttons are 'Kompanie' marked, 11th Company, part of a Battalion within a Regiment, not a regiment, Division, or an Army Corps number !.....unless the 'Rock', has a name tag I.D.ing the owner/regiment or a cuff title you will never know.

    Clearly the shoulder straps once had regimental numbers or a cyhper on them, a pity these have been removed.

    Jay, can you show the numbers you mention please.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Jay, these are size and inspection marks. I suspected that is what they would be.

    From these we can determine it was an issue peice and not a private purchase version.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade, I thought it might have been a private purchase as it doesn't have have the internal buckle bits. Is that common or just personal preference? Jay

    Hi Jay, the internal belt is usually found on private purchase examples.

    Cheers, Ade.
