Yes, a M36 helmet would be the perfect addition. I know of one which was worn during the Norwegian campaign.

I need to admire these trousers in person....soon!

Not only are they special, hyper rare, and incredibly wonderful, they also seem to be in excellent condition. Congrats!

Interesting photo Nick
Here another important detail....missing flap and snap ( button ) on the small rear pocket.Not removed flap, no signs of the snap ...simply done that way by the producer.

Congratulations on these really outstanding trousers, Gustav.
Like John said, not only are they super-rare but in such good condition, too!

When I wrote volume 1 of the Fallschirmjäger books I was trying very hard to locate a pair of these somewhere, anywhere - but nobody had even heard of a genuine copy of the 1st pattern trousers. They have found a really worthy new owner. Again: Well done mate!

Cheers
Karl

Hi,

Photo of the post #24 is of the 16/FJR6 and the para with the Narvik shield is Alexander ULHIG. Note the guy with the Felddivision camo smock and the G41.

Is it disrespectful to ask who was the ex - owner ( I guess the deal is complete now)?
european or from the USA ?
