    They are wearing the tracksuit [Trainingsanzug] (or at least the top thereof) with the woven circular breast patch for sports clothing.

    Hi Nick,

    Yes it is, I was just beaten to it there. I think these must be pretty rare. I have never seen one "in the cloth" as it were and they are seldom seen in books.

    There is a pic on page 18 of Chris Ailsby's excellent book;

    "SS Hell on the Eastern Front The Waffen SS war in Russia 1942 -1945"

    ISBN 1-86227-031-7 published by Spellmount

    Check it out!

    Are you saying you have never seen the cloth patch or ?

    Hi Sarge

    I can't open your link

    Yes I have seen those sports patches I have one in my collection but I have only seen them on sports shirts. I didn't recognise the uniforms in the pic

    No mate, I am saying I have never seen an actual example of the traininganzug! Yes I have seen the patches but never attached to the garment. Like Nick I have seen them on PT vests but never the track suit which is what makes me consider them rare

    BTW that's quite a frame you have there

    Regards

    Mark
