    Default Sumpftarnmunster winter reversible parka

    This example from my collection is one that has seen plenty of use and is worn and faded. Plus it has the odd little field repair.

    What I particularly like is the fact that the pockets are lined with off cuts of the earlier Splintertarnmunster or known to collectors as "Green splinter pattern" camo material. The makers did not waste materials!

    The parka is marked with the RB number makers code "0/2901/0013" and the date 1943 seen under the windflap to the front of the jacket.

    Collectors used to call this camo pattern "Tan water pattern". But I think it is now good to use the actual names used during the war in the original German language.

    Cheers, Ade.

    very nice Ade! I'm looking for one for these babies since a while : whether they are too patched with different shades of camo pattern whether they are too expensive, so far I didn't find the right one

    Thanks for the interest, but as forum friends will tell you, I never sell.

    Cheers, Ade.
