    Just got a new piece:



    A Breadbag in cut of the Bwundeswehr-Brotbeutel 56. Grey colour with ZB-Stamp in it.

    I never saw any pic of it. Maybe it was manufactured between 1951 (the Wehrmacht-Style breadbag) and 1968 (the introduction of the later "Kleine kampftasche" style).

      So who wore this style of shirt in green?

      Customs?

        Team - These items were up for auction recently. I thought they might be of interest.

        First up is an early THW dress tunic.

              Frank - Nice piece!

              On a slighty related note, back in 2004 I was traveling on A6 in southern Germany. During a rest stop, a THW convoy pulled into the parking lot.

              One individual was wearing what looked like the standard "oliv" Bundeswehr combat belt. When I got closer however, I noticed it was the same gray color as your assault pack.

              In any event, congratulations on finding such a nice collectable.

                Team - This ZS tunic was up for auction recently. What I found unusual was the city patch, "Kiel", on the right shoulder.

                    A close-up of the ZS patch.

                    As the city patch was hand-applied and the ZS machine applied, does anyone think the city patch was an unauthorized addition?

                    Thanks - TJ

                      TJ,

                      At a guess I would say that someone "emhanced" this ZS tunic with the "Kiel" badge. There is a THW office in Kiel but I can not find any ZS office. There is a chance there was a ZS office there before they were disbanded but there is no reference to it on the net now.

                      Regards,

                      Gordon

                              THW belt

                              almost the same belt as in post 13 but with the buckle from post 40.
                              the buckle in this case is still detachable.
                              regards,
