These books are not too hard to find and not too expensive.

But they do contain some good information on the placement of badges on the tunic and the variations of the badges. Good stuff if you...

I believe the liner is original to the helmet - the foam looks like the hard, crumbly stuff found in earlier M66 liners.

I've never seen a stamp like that - perhaps it's a property marking from a...

Here are a couple interior shots. The ushanka is dated 1979 and still has a leather sweatband, long after the NVA stopped using them in their ushankas.

Torsten,

On the left is the Police-style, "NVA" marked ushanka. On the right is a late vintage Army/Grenz ushanka. You can clearly see the difference between the Police light battleship gray...

Torsten,

The overseas hat looks like a typical late vintage NVA officer's hat: stone gray color, gabardine material.

I'll post a few pics this weekend.

EM and non-career NCO's continued to wear the dark collar tunic up until 1979 (by the book), whereas career NCO's and officers wore the open collar tunic beginning in 1974/75. You will occasionally...

I've seen examples of this kind of thing before.

I have an Army style overseas hat marked "MdI" and a Police style ushanka marked "NVA".

Production mistake? Supply shortage? Or is there some...

Kees,

The same thought occurred to me as well - looks like it might be a bird with spread wings.

I'm afraid you are probably right - this one is likely to remain a mystery.

With any luck...

Kees,

I couldn't make out any text apart from "Anmeldung hier". But I did spot something above the guy on the right in the group photo. The arrow is pointing to it. Looks like it could be the same...

Nick,

The Gefreiter boards (the bottom pair) are from 1956 - 70. Note the tongues and underside of the boards made of the thick, wooly material. The edge of the boards is some kind of cord that...

Nick,

Nice insignia! The early Grenztruppen shoulder boards are a challenge to get.

You are right that in 1956 - 61 the Deutsche Grenzpolizei would have been watching the border. During that...

Here's the last one for Miiltary Forestry 2018. This one came from yet another source.

Here is a Skimuetze with "furry" earflaps. The State Forestry guys also wore this style hat.

Thanks Andro.

Good suggestion, I'll try to dig around and see if I can come up with some information on the Vekehrsbetriebe.

Mike,

I'm really fascinated by the Military Forestry stuff - it's NVA, yet off the beaten path.

Digressing for just a bit, I'm REALLY pining away for a Military Forestry visor hat. They're...

Ralph,

I'm intrigued by the Sorge pennant.

I presume this is affiliated somehow with the 9th Panzer Division? Eggesin is where they were based.

Nick,

This style of hat was worn from 1956 - 61/62, after which the DGP were re-named "Greztruppen der DDR" and transferred to the Ministry of Defense (MfNV).

I agree with Kees, looks like the...

Mystery Uniforms

Can anyone identify these uniforms?

It looks like the hat wreaths are the style used on civilian hats like Volunteer Fire Fighter. Beyond that I'm clueless. The collar tabs and the device on...

Nick,

This is my suggestion as to what you should try for (without the cuff piping and NCO collar Tresse).

This is a 1964 dated example that started off as parade tunic, later the cuff bars...

Nick,

Although the tunic stamp is hard to read, the large rectangular border is a style that was used in the first couple years of the NVA. During this time (1956 - 58) tunics, trousers, breeches...
