first time ive ever seen an ak clothing bag! so they existed, then. is there any suggesting this gear came from one trooper, or 'just' represents someones collection? a handsome tan ensemble, to be sure. nicely laid out for drooling readers, like myself.

Thanks again for all the comments.

Willi - Glad it went to you.

Corporal Steiner - My reaction was the same as yours. As I mentioned in my first post, I didn't know a tropical clothing bag even existed, but recognized it immediately behind their table on top of some storage tubs and covered over with coats, etc.

I asked the seller the same question you asked. He did not know if this belonged to one person and his interest was only selling the entire group on consignment. My instinct says it is unlikely they all came as one grouping, but they are all from the same period (early tropical), no mixing with late RBNr. tropical.

As a collector of all things tropical related to items used by the German military in the Sicilian/Italian campaigns, I would but like to express my congratulations to you on your outstanding find, so I shall; congratulations.

Do you all think the scarf I posted (see also close-ups) is the same type scarf shown in Robert Kurtz's Afrikakorps book? See photo below and mine. Ribbing and texture looks identical.

Hat tip to hcliffe for finding the photo.

Great find! - You never know what is hidden behind tables, at the end of a show. You guess you´ve seen all, but I made some of my best finds when the shows were nearly over...
No need to leave a show early!

IMO the period foto shows a normal triangle hankerchief, rolled up as scarf around the neck. When worn that way for a while, it shows those creases, when pulled up over the nose. Had had some of those in the past, showing the same "muster".

Your scarf is really rare, this is only the 3rd I have seen - here is one a friend has:
