    This is my 1979 East German helmet with camouflage ties in it. Thought all you guys might find this interesting as I for one have never seen another East German helmet with camo ties in it.

    Hi René, looks like you are having fun.

    I have toyed with collecting DDR in the past. Especially when I visited the former East last year. But space issues precludes me taking it up. So I enjoy seeing all the kit.

    Cheers, Ade.

    strichtarn was originally used by the Polish and quickly discontinued when the DDR adopted it!
    here is some info:

    Although unquestionably influenced by WW2 German camouflage designs such as Splittermuster (splinter pattern) and Sumpfmuster (marsh pattern), it was Poland that fielded the first design that has come to be known as "rain" pattern. This design series is known officially as the wz58 Deszczyk (raindrop). Distinguished from the WW2 designs by the simplicity of incorporating only densely concentrated lines or "rain straits" over a solid-colored field, the design actually has limited functionality as camouflage and from a distance probably serves no greater purpose than would a solid-colored uniform. Nevertheless, several other countries in the Warsaw Pact developed their own versions of the rain pattern, (most notably East Germany), and a number of insurgent movements are known to have utilized the patterns over the years. The original Polish design is a heavy pattern of dark brown rain straits on a brownish-green or blue-grey background (two variants are documented, often referred to as "brown" and "grey" variations). Although the rain straits are generally thinner than those found in patterns from other Warsaw Pact nations, some versions with thick rain straits have also been documented.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    As for camo effectiveness I don't really care for that because British DPM is my favorite! I'm liking this junk more because it is from a now non existing force and one that is not heavily faked, it's a real joy to collect-- even though it is filling up space from my relatively vast WW2 junk pile

    ive said this before and ill say it again ,fritz looks great rené , and the boots have come on superb ,i know what you mean though they are too nice to have hidden, the bloused parade look is much smarter ,nice selection of caps displayed too ,i like seeing items having a turn on a display , the m56 hanging off the belt displays well ,my only other strichtarn camo helmet is my czech model 53 but has more of a green base colour ,still an interesting pattern though ,keep up the great work ,i look forward to more ,cheers james
