    Default Early LAH Headgear and tunics

    Beside the many threads "Is this garment real or not" i think it is well worth to share this interesting Picture which i got today. It is dated 1934 and related to the 5.Kompanie of the LAH.
    The place it was taken is Pottenstein (Oberfranken).

    Thank you for posting what is an excellent view of early uniform items. Is the information regarding the unit on the back of the photo, and if so, might it be possible to post a scan of the reverse?
    Thanks again.

    A shame that the ring on the cross legged sitter's finger is just not quite able to be made out!

    Although...with the blurred graininess....I'm certain that it would instantly be adjudged as "cast....without a doubt"....

    What types of uniforms are those? They look like some kind of woolen version of the fatigues.

    These exercise jackets are sometimes seen in early SSPB/SSVT photographs.

    They differ from the normal tunics by a number of features: They are of a "pull-over"type (no full front closure, with an opening only down to the waistline) with a rather loosely-fitting, comfortable cut, have two internal breast pockets with straight flaps, buttoned sleeves and no shoulder boards.

    Perhaps d'alquen has more information.

    Thanks so much for your fine material. You give us welcome relief from the endless rolling the rock up the hill as to authenticity, etc.

    Viel Sammlerglueck!
    damit, basta.
