    My guess would be that it is for the post-war German Service Organisation (GSO) that existed in the British occupation zone. BAOR is the British Army of the Rhine.

    A little strange as the 1951 issue greatcoat only had 5 pairs of buttons and in one photo the colour looks nearer to field grey, maybe because the BAOR were a permanent fixture in West Germany they sourced things through local suppliers?..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Yes most likely as it has German type buttons and looks German made

    I wasn't sure about the color as it appears different between the photos, but if it is dark green that, too, supports that GSO is indeed the German Service Organisation I was referring to. They wore dark green uniforms.
