Certainly a fake. Details, base fabric, and the backing are not like known originals.

Thanks Mike and Tom! I will keep my eyes open for a field grade set of Epauletten.

Yes, too bad it is not named or with a tailor label. There is a set of loops on the right side as well. Other...

Shaun, I know where Trebes' helmet is. It is likely he brought that helmet with him when von der Heydte requested that he be attached to his command, as he was seeking seasoned commanders. Unlikely...

As Jim and I discussed at the recent SoS, not every cap in blue with a red band is Infantry. Obviously, merely based on sheet numbers, the odds are pretty good and in favor of Infantry. His...

FJR6 helmets in Köln-Wahn before the regiment deployed to France in the spring of '44. Not all are camoed. From Karl's Volume 2.

Here is a lengthy thread we started 13 years ago. Perhaps we can find some more companies to add to the list. There is also some great information from Mark Bando, and others.

Arnad, you are correct. We have done that on earlier FJR6 threads. Corrupting the data to the point where it is invalid.

I certainly think we are going down the wrong road if we start adding other...

Add the 10th from the first page.

I know we had a very long thread on these in the past. Some more recent ones as well. I recall there were unit markings on some of those as well.

Marc, I have never seen that on an original example. The painting sequence on these is a base coat of green, then tan, and green again. It appears the sawdust was applied after the last 2 layers of...

A postwar added stamp to increase it's value is certainly possible. As you mentioned above, Darmstadt is in Hesse, so that would be my focus. That type of insignia is pretty hard to reapply without...

Hi Torsten,

Thanks for commenting. The Epauletten came with this Garde Schützen tunic. I was told this is an earlier tunic (1890 or earlier). So, they should have red cloth centers, like Garde...

Personally I do not like that ink stamp, and like Tom, feel a unit designation in that sequence is incorrect.

Improvisation was necessary in such a time. My Father wore a Heer (even though he was former Luftwaffe) belt and buckle, with the Swastika filed off, for years after he was released...

FJR6 Camouflage Helmet Types

We have had several threads presenting what is generally known as a "FJR6 camo"; tan and green spray with sawdust. But, what about other types of camos worn by members of that regiment?

Superb helmet Shaun! Congrats!

Regarding FJR6. One of the discussions we had at the show was whether only one battalion (or perhaps...
