Thank you for the pointers rene' shows how naive im still with early ddr militaria ,wishing you and your wife all the best for today and new year from wales ,"nadolig Llawen a blwyddyn newydd dda "
bunch of tinnies that came my way
Had to dress up Ken in the para service uniform
Last DDR items for the year - Bunch more tinnies (will give me something to do to research them), older pattern Y straps, Air force OR jacket & a police summer shirt
Happy New Year All
Very nice displays rene' all the items are time warp condition ,just to enlighten me how to tell the earlier load bearing harness ,different pattern weave or material i really cant be sure ,happy new year to you and your wife
G'day James, the yoke on the earlier ones are a sort of heart shaped, later types are circular
cheers rene' so am i right in saying more alike to the TR yokes in style
naa they pretty well the same as the later type, here's the two together. Note also the changes to the hooks and where the pack straps connect at the rivet ie newer is 3 piece older is 2 piece.
