Great pictures! So the 2nd gray type's cloth feels more like moleskin than the smooth (but thick) cloth of the 1st gray type?

I think the 3rd gray type is an Arbeitsdienstanzug. I say this because three open topped jacket pockets is a common trait for work uniforms in many nations. Which makes sense since the work uniforms were designed to be cheaper than the field uniforms.

Another bit of evidence that the production date is identical to the 2nd gray type. Having the two serving alongside each other in the field is less likely than a field and a work uniform.

Thanks for posting the pics! I'm now very curious to see what is used currently by the surviving disaster relief agencies.
