    Default Wehrmacht & Tropical

    Hello Gentlemen,
    This new sticky thread based on period photos is dedicated to tropical clothing, fieldgear, headgear...etc....within the Wehrmacht....IT IS NOT A THREAD ABOUT THE D.A.K. ONLY !
    As you know tropical items were not worn or carried in combat in Africa only, but also from Western France to Southern Russia...so if you have got some photos about France, Italy, Greece, the Balkans or anything related to tropical...this is here where to post them...
    I hope you'll enjoy this thread...

    The first photo shows three german Officers of which one is wearing a tropical uniform. The photo was taken on the 19th of September 1944 in Croismare, Lorraine. The Oberleutnant in tropical uniform is a member of the 15. Panzergrenadier-Division arriving from Italy. Both other Officers who wear light Panzer uniforms belong to Panzerbrigade 111. The Oberleutnant is wearing Luftwaffe tropical pants, a first pattern Tropenbluse with continental insignia and a bleached or white locally made/privately purchased tropical cap (also with continental insignia). He's indicating to Panzerbrigade 111 Officers where to deploy in the "Forêt de Parroy". The Sdkfz 251 is most likely from Panzerbrigade 111 (or from a Kampfgruppe from 21. Panzerdivision).
    This photo is from several photos reports following the Panzerbrigade 111 all along September 1944...

    also another famous photo...note the cap worn underneath the helmet, the long shovel over the shoulder is british...it is impossible to see it on this photo because of the definition, but the right soldier's helmet right pin is replaced by a nail....note also tropical greatcoats....
