    This is a surcoat. Worn OVER the greatcoat for guard duty etc. These were issued to both the Heer and Waffen SS.

    Do not add a sleeve eagle to this unless it had one originally.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi
    thanks for replies.
    I will not add insignia then.
    Not sure this is a rabbits' skin.

    I have heard that, but never knew if it was true? So I was loathe to repeat it. You know how these things go.

    Cheers, Ade.

    In the wise words of Elmer J Fudd (Here Mr bunny wabbit heheheheheheheh)
    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    So as per Besslein it's a SS mantel.
    SO no worries for the rabbits... for sure they were pure and noble...and died with honor.
