    Yes I noticed that after I made the picture and I put the uniform back in its box. Big provocative mistake that should be punished severely...

    Default Grenztuppen Leutnant mid '80s

    Here's a display I just set up this morning.

    The uniform is one I obtained from a former Leutnant in Grenz Regiment 25 (I also have his fathers group, he was an Engineer Major in 4 Motorisiert Schutzen Division at Erfurt in the '50s - '60s which I will post later) who served '83 - '86.

    The belt, shirt/tie and Ehrendolch I already had. I have set it up as parade dress but it really should, more commonly for marching troops, have Keilhose (jodpuhrs) but they will be added later.

    I think the picture turned out well but the mannequin still looks like "Herr Otto Flick".

    Regards

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    Very nice... and a damned sight better than the set-up I did. My wife said it looked like a transvestite!

    Awesome display! I bet it would scare the crap out of a burglar who wouldn't expect to see a German guard in uniform.

    Excellent display Mark, love how the flag spices things up in the background. But remember to put the lowest cord of the aiguillette on the backside of the mannequin.
