New addition: officer's leather overcoat

Article about: It's stunning mate. I'm still banging my head on the wall for not taking it. At least it has gone to a loving home

    Hi Robbie, no sorry, you need a wide plain brown belt with an open frame two pronged buckle.

    I know I keep banging on about it, but good reference books are what you need.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry Ade, you're right, I really do. Can you suggest any? I'm not, as you can tell, very experienced in these matters

    Get Brian L Davis' "German Army Uniforms and Insignia 1933 - 1945" an old book but still the best basic guide.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
