Default General question

Not a uniform guy -
But looking at this photo made me want to ask how many jackets did the standard soldier / officer own ??

I would guess you have the combat jacket, the summer jacket, and the jacket w your medals to impress the ladies?

Unfortunately, I can't answer your specific question. Still, that's a great picture in that it shows a Panzer beret (Schutzmütze) in the upper right of the locker. It appears that a black uniform, probably wrapper, is situated just before the overcoat. I've seen a number of these locker pictures, but never an early Panzer one. Also notice the transitional helmet.

Great picture!!

Steve

The standard soldier has 4 fieldgrey tunics, as seen here: one Waffenrock (to impress the ladies ), easily to spot by the epaulettes in the lower arms. And 3 combat tunics, normally marked with large "numbers" I to III, for e.g. 1. Garnitur (1st set). The higher number, the worse tunic. Meaning the III was meant to be worn in combat, exercise in the fields, etc.

Then 2 white (actually oatmeal) drill / work tunics. 2 cause they got stained quickly, so one is ready, when the other one gots cleaned.

Then one greatcoat. And for special troops (as here Panzer), some specific uniform.
