    What a great thread! Waffenrocks are my personal favourites as they look amazing and are much cheaper compared with many combat tunics. Sadly i do not own one but i have my eye on this nice minty looking Cavalry Waffenrock although i will need to double check with you guys that it is genuine before i make a purchase
    Thanks, Glen.

    Cheers Ade, I can easily get more pics but at 450 i like it. But it is not a definite purchase yet as you never know what else might pop along
    Thanks, Glen.

    Here are a few quick shots of my Waffenrock. I bought it at the TMCA show in November. It came with the ribbon bar, but I added the Wound Badge. Not even sure if the bar is authentic. Just a neat, cheap way to get into a tunic. I understand the bright yellow is signals?

    Yes, lemon yellow or zitronengelb is for signals (sorry if the German spelling is wrong).

    Hi

    Here is a private purchase waffenrock for medical NCO who served with Sanitats Kompanie 23. This was an intergral unit of the 23rd infantry division.

    Looking at the tunic I guess the guy was promoted after he bought the tunic as the second "piston ring" that denotes his rank as company speiss is of a different type of tresse to the cuff one. I would speculate he was a long serving member of the unit as the speiss role traditionally went to older members of the NCO fraternity.

    The tunic has medal bar loops and one medal loop, it came with the medal ribbon already attached but I'm not convinced this is a period addition.

    The insignia on the right sleeve is the NCO qualification badge of the staff of asclepius. This is the traditional symbol of medicine of a serpent encircling a staff.
    The badge denotes the wearer as a medical personnel and the 3mm aluminium band was authorised in 1939 to denote nco qualification.

    This guy was not a qualified doctor as only those who had passed the exams could wear the silver insignia on their shoulder boards. This is why he has the unit numbers on his boards.

    Next up is an artillery tunic for regt 51. This is another private purchase and is marked gepruft 1/AR51 inside on the lining.

    This was a heavy artillery regiment and was raised around 1935. The 1st battalion transferred to artillery regt 15 as part of the 15th infantry division in Oct 1937 and was based in Fulda, military district ix.

    The regiment served in France 1940, central sector eastern front 1941-42 and was destroyed in Aug 1944 in south ukraine/romania.

    The medal bar and sports award are my additions on the original loops. The button for the lanyard was also in place.

    Infantry tunic. Sadly no regt numbers or any markings to help put some history around it.
