    Hi,

    we do not have to forget also the first type of canvas Y-straps.
    In their original issue they sport hooks on the straps for the attachment of the Backpack 1st model.
    These Y-straps are made exactly as the former leather ones which are nothing else than a fair copy of the Wehrmacht type...

    You can see in the pictures that I posted that the second Y-straps are the same model as the first one depicted, only the modification on the straps makes them peculiar. As a matter of fact the big "D" rings are nothing more than the "D" rings which were fitted on the backpack 1st model.
    These modification was necessary to accomodate the backpack 2nd model for which the Y-straps with the heart shape, that René showed us, have been developed.

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Thank You Most Kindly Alex for contributing and helping so far the tiny community of DDR collectors here on this site. For me especially it's still a learning curb! I'm pretty well done on the WW2 side of things (other than the odd trickled in item) and will on go the DDR collecting.
    Happy New Year Mate!

    Hi Rene,

    Those short sleeved jack shirts are fantasy items...I believe they were made by someone who had a pile of NVA surplus after the fall of the DDR and was trying to create something a bit more fashionable...I'd save the boards for something better.

    (I also have one but in my case only because I think that they look quite striking with short sleeves )

    Cheers,

    @Jonathan Wenberg:

    NO. Those short sleeve shirts are not fantasy. Those shirts were issued in the MdI police forces.

    @René: for NVA these shirts are not ok!.....try to check the stamp of the shirt....it must be stamped "MdI"
