    Default RAD-tunics, global survey 1933-1945

    I tried to create a sort of chronological survey about the development of the various, official tunics as worn by the males from the RAD during the period 1933 through 1943. For this I have reviewed some thousands of pages of any kind from my files. The images included with this information will be shown. Not included are the tailor’s variations and the in-depth descriptions for manufacturing a specific tunic. Many would not be able to read it properly and so it only would be ballast. Not all was ever covered and/or announced when changed. What will be shown is a load of information and practical for those who like to know about the tunic from their collection they have at hand. Over 35 images will be included (it will take a while before all is loaded for this thread)!

    RAD-tunic from Gwar (as shown in another thread):

    Compare this form of tunic with the coming drawings and information as the phrased official ones. Or find out if it is a tailor’s variation!

    New a closed tunic with seven buttons and a Litewka without breast pockets. Leaders with the rank Unterfeldmeister and upwards did wear the closed tunic (geschlossene Rock)

    I could do this for practically most of the worn tunics from the TR,
    but at the end it is too much work. It took me over a day for making
    this for the RAD. Most however would not be that long as for the RAD.

    Wim. Very informative and with such detailed period literature not often seen by anyone..
    I for one have saved this (as with many of your threads) to the "Pinned" option on my browser for future reference... Thanks... G

    To end my cooperation to this thread I include some photos of tunics in wearing.
    Most do come from volume 4 from the series "Headgear of Hitler's Germany" and
    from my book about gorgets. Just one photo of from the labor-book from Angolia/
    Littlejohn. Only when I think it is needed, I will further interrupt!

    It is hoped WRF members do include photos from their collection where tunics of
    different types are worn, to simply upgrade this thread. So, cooperation would be great!
    It would also be great when WRF-owners of RAD-tunics of any kind do include a front and
    reverse-photo from their collection and give their opinion about the model or period of time.
    Thanks in advance (for an eventual cooperation)!
