Book(s) Detailing Pre-War VT/TK Uniforms/Insignia?

Article about: Mollo's work on the subject aside, could someone please recommend to me an authoritative work on pre-war SS VT/TK uniforms and insignia? Something heavy on color pics of surviving uniform it

ID:	946763The Oberbayern cuff title in the Totenschaedel format was worn further; the vertical Totenschaedel patch was also worn, sometimes in a form where the Hundertschaft
    numeral was excised. I do not think there was such a thing as an earth grey peaked field cap, and surely the use of Waffenfarbe (such as it is...) was in the year 1940ff, whereas the earth brown colored uniforms were superseded/replaced/phased out ca. 1936-8, or so. The earth brown caps of which I am aware are the Schiffchen in the army cut.
    Mollo mentions that the remaining earth brown uniforms were to be recycled ca. 1941. If you have someone offer you an earth brown cap with the cloth peak
    and Waffenfarbe, I would turn on my heel very fast. Saris says that there was an earth brown peaked cap, but I will leave it to him to detail the sources on that.
    I own what was portrayed as a earth grey peaked cap, but I think it is just kind of field grey, actually. The Beaver book tackles the earth brown vs earth grey problematic.
    I included for you what is a 1935 cloth sample from a Munich firm of "erdbraun," which is a more authoritative source that much of the who ha.

    Mr. d'Alquen knows all of this far better than I, and maybe he will say something, as will Mr. Saris.
    damit, basta.

ID:	946762If you read the secondary works, none of them can account for this photo nor what is in the SSBW price list for this year, either.
