    The assumption (made by a person formerly in the DDR military) is the badge seen above the pocket is a 'Diensthundefuehrerabzeichen', 'dog handler' group. If anyone on the forum can confirm the claim, please let me know.
    As Rene already stated, this is not actually so. There is such a thing as a "Hundeführer"-badge, but it was worn over the right breast pocket and clearly shows a dogs head. The badges are indeed (right to left) two police service badges (for like 5 and 10 years of service) and the one on the left is the badge for "Loyal service in the Kasernierte Volkspolizei". A very important detail: the KVP where the wearer has earned the medal was the 1952-1956 Kasernierte Volkspolizei (which later turned into the NVA), NOT the later Bereitschaftspolizei (also officially called the KVP). Seems he has been in service for quite some time.

    This uniform is not for the ordinary police and the green color of the collar tabs and shoulder boards provides the clue. The two chevrons on the sleeve signify the bearer signed up to be a professional, long-term NCO.
    True! The Bereitschaftspolizei wore light green collar tabs, shoulder boards and (as in this case) cuff bars. There are more ways to spot the difference. The BePo used an overall military style in it's clothing (as did the Kasernierte Einheiten der Transportpolizei). The BePo uses cuff bars for parades and so on, the VoPo did not. The BePo can be seen with (as in this case) a chevron on the right sleeve - with the VoPo, these were worn on the left.

    What you have here is a very nice set! 1970 would be correct for the jacket also, as during the 1970's (I believe even the early 70's, though not entirely sure) they stopped making these jackets out of wooly materials and switched to officer-quality uniforms for all ranks.

    I like the winter kit. There was some in a charity shop in Chemnitz when I visited 3 years ago. I resisted buying them, as I knew where it would lead! I don't have room to start a new collecting line.

    Cheers, Ade.
