Put down the glass and look closely. Or hold the glass up and look through it.

I too would not buy any of these items because they are LW but I understand now that you are showing us non-text book items in period photos.

I have not seen anything too funky yet, you guys should not post these. I still get great deals on things like this because people cannot find a oddball item shown in Angolia etc.

Interesting,looks like Luft blouses with Heer collar tabs applied...Looks like the officer added visor chin cords to his M43 (have seen a few other period photos of this being done)



How about this one.

What impresses me most about the picture of the three is that at least two of them are wearing Army paratroop badges, one of which is a cloth one. VERY NICE!!!!

Picture is interesting in other aspects, too, but I'll leave it to other to go there.

Assault Gun wrap with Jager insignia and Army para badge...what a unique combination.
Both cloth badges appear to be Army Para. Very nice indeed.

Hello,

The pants look curious too. Fallschirmhose?

Cheers,
