Any Photos of Luftwaffe Camo Uniforms?

Would appreciate it if anyone having photos of Luftwaffe camo uniform items such as caps, smocks and mittens would post them. Have had some success with these but more are always welcome. Thanks!

Looks like a rarer variety late war ersatz holster from the pics but I obviously don't have it in hand.

Used material from surveyed gear was salvaged for use as a common practice. Even salvageable enemy items were put to further use as nothing was wasted during the war.

Strange.

Next I expect that the "actual" sword surrendered by the Japs aboard the USS Missouri will turn up in the estate of some Seaman 1/C who spirited it away and left another in its place. At...

Just reminded that Julia sold out so he's no longer a factor. This particular pistol has been sold several times at high prices so I doubt that there's a problem with the engraving. Some claim that...

There are published photos of HG's surrender and the pistol he handed over was a US .38 Special. Can't recall if it was a Colt or S&W but the latter is probably correct.
