    Default Rural policeman's uniform q's

    Hello all,

    I am new to the site and was hoping to gain some info on a couple things. I have a old WW2 German Uniform that I acquired about 18 years ago. It had been brought back from the war and sat in a trunk for 50+ years before I found it. 15 years ago I worked with a gentleman that was an avid buff of German WW2 artifacts. I brought it in for him to look over, he told me that what I had was a Rural Policeman's uniform. He stated that there weren't many that survived the war. My question is can anyone confirm what it is?


    Thanks in Advance!

    Not rural police (Gendarmerie), but Fire Protection Police (Feuerschutzpolizei). Rank is Hauptwachtmeister.

    The colours of the jacket and the cuffs/piping date it from 1938 to late 1942-nothing the Germans liked better than reorganising their many, many different uniformed organisations...

    The last tunic seems to be a summer weight tunic. I thought you said you had 1 tunic.

    Thanks to all! Now I know what it is. I have the summer shirt as mentioned above, the outer jacket, and 2 pairs of pants that were with it. No boots or belts unfortunately.

    Additionally is there anyone who might be able to appraise what I have? I am in the Northeastern U.S.
    Thanks in advance!
