    This one is bad.

    The faker has made the very common error of taking the wrong pattern of British denim Battledress to base his fake upon.

    The Germans used captured BD's taken in France in 1940 and issued them to U Boat crews. These were worn with German insignia.

    The problem is, these early BD blouses were a khaki brown shade and had a different cut to the later type, as used here. I have seen lots of these fakes over the past 30 years.

    When captured stocks ran out, as these were popular uniforms, the Germans made their own versions which were of a grey/green HBT material.

    Cheers, Ade.

    A real thanks Adrian for your nice explication, I am not a excellent collector about the jacket, my knowledge is limited, Waffenrock, rock, Model 36 and 42 are my only reference.
    I would pass thanks again
    I will post a nice Cavalry waffenrock and cap commins soon
