    Thanks Phil/ Steve, I don't mind well worn/ combat worn militaria, but I guess a lot of that didn't survive. It's possible that some of this minty stuff belonged to people who didn't survive the war, perhaps it stayed at home never to be reclaimed, and was retained by the family as a keep-sake? Sometimes very small sizes remained in the stores and so were never issued, but the Waffenrock and visor are decent sizes so who knows what their story is?

    If anyone is interested the mannequin is from a French outlet "Historia Mannequins", they do good smaller sizes which often suit WW2 uniforms etc. It can (just) accomodate an 84cm chest and can take a 56cm cap easily:-

    I've been told that this company is owned by the same person, but I've never ordered from them:-
