    No idea mate, all I will say is that it has a very close resemblance to some post war East German gear. I am not saying that is not a genuine WW2 Forestry item, it is just so difficult to say. Leon

    So it is all original as per waf experts on forestry, but missing collar tabs as it was re-used post-war. So now it is time to find those :-)

    With some help and research, I found the coat belonged to Revierfoerster Horst Quednau. He was the Revierfoerster since 1934 at Rekowe/Rekau near Ortelsburg in East Prussia and was killed in 1943 in Russia while serving with 3rd Company of Pionier-Bataillon 41 in Stalingrad.


    This is the set of tabs I need :-)
