    Default German lightweight tunic Heer, Ostfront

    Dear all,

    May I show you this private purchased/depot made lightweight tunic of an "Oberfeld" please? All the time it was a strong wish of me to get a Wehrmacht tunic. Now I have done, it's on hold so the anticipation ist much greater for me. I am enjoying it very much

    I have chosen consciously Espenlaub Militaria as my provider so I think it's authenticity is not in question, istn't it?

    According to my sources those kind of tunic was used originally at the Eastern Front, but could be seen on all frontlines in summer 1943/44. I would be very pleased if you had some more information about this tunic, e.g. hints about the time period of its production, occasions about its use?

    All comments are wellcome.

    With best wishes

    Yes Espenlaub is very decent. I highly recommend them to anyone serious into studying our conflict history.

    And also, you have included a good piece of WW2 history into your collection. They often used Soviet tents for making these summer jackets. Now get the rest of it assembled on a mannequin and placed into a full size display box with museumsquality lightning.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Dear TrondK,

    Thank you very much for your kind answer! And great idea to display it in such a way.

    I think I have to wait for such a nice display until our children will leave us and I will get a "muse's chamber" for my own. In the meantime a solid cabinet would do it

    Since such a tunic is a rather expensive project I have told it to my wife. She has given her okay to a tunic if the moths don't eat it. With this kind of tunic the danger is minimal for the most part

    A very nice example. I have a similar one in my collection. I have shown it on the forum in the dim and distant past.

    Popular items with NCO's and Officers.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The moths may attack your shoulder boards & collar tabs.... but think you should be moth free on the tunic.

    First I have seen of this model. It's nice
