    Very informative thread JP. Thanks for posting. I used to think that DAK tunics should only have tropical insignia. The posted photos show that this is wrong. Even 1st pattern tunics worn in Africa are seen with continental insignia. Not to mention the uncommon, as Mark said, tropical tunics with panzer tabs.
    Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377

    Was the war going so bad that this poor chap only got ONE set of pouches for his K98?

    Panzer officer in post #35 may be wearing a rare 'two tone' hat--olive on top, tan on the bottom.

    Hi Nigel,
    I'd say Micklei's cap has a proud peak, shading just slightly the lower section?
    Here's a good image I recently picked up.
