    Default what can you tell me about this uniform?

    I do not know if i am on the right thread but please move or delete if it had no place on this forum .
    I went last week at a thrift store to drop some bag of clothes and as i was leaving the store i saw this huge poster with this heavy metal frame who caught my eyes . The picture definitively was talking to me ( not in a way that it is worth million and is something rare) .My question is what uniform this soldier is wearing ? i know for sure it's post war but on witch side is he ? east or west . i included some pic i took of it it's printed on heavy cardboard .i paid 7$ and for some reason i love the story that it tell.
    Thanks in advance

    Ewan when i saw it in that store i couldn't leave it there it had to be in my area . But now i am more and more curious about the whole shot . I am sure somebody will have seen that pic somewhere in a book or a magazine lots of time and know what is the story behind the shot .

    This is a famous photo of an East German border guard circa 1962 preparing to escape by juming the wire. It is marketed through the Haus am Checkpoint Charlie Museum in Berlin
