    Sprogcollector,

    Later uniforms were like a singlebreast suit jacket. They are a lighter blue in colour and do not have collar tabs.

    Regards,

    Gordon

    The few photos of DBP uniforms that I remember seeing all seemed like sport jackets rather than 4-pocket service uniforms. I also don't remember seeing collar tabs on postal uniforms. That said, definitely not an area I'm overly familiar with.

    The jacket shown looks more like a railway uniform. I have a M-43 style cap that's a similar color.

    kees,

    Thanks for a close up of the buttons. Interesting that they are gold. I have only seen silver buttons on DBP tunics. At one time period they had the DBP symbol on them. The same as the hats. At a later time frame they went to silver but I am not sure when these changes took place.

    Regards,

    Gordon

    ok Gordon.
    what I have from wartime postal is orange piped as well.
    because the picture of the tunic is taken from a distance you can't see the buttons real good so I've made another close up.
    I've compared them to reichsbahn tunics and they have the same gold pebbely finish as these ones.
    that doesn't say anything about the tunics age cause war time buttons were used post war as well I think.
    what a shame someone removed those collar tabs,it would have made it so easy

    kees,

    I believe the hat in post #24 to be of post war manufacture. Your tunic has smooth buttons so probably dates from the late 50s or early 60s or later. It could go with any of the yellow pipped hats. Yellow was not used during WWII by the Reichspost. At least as far as I know.

    Regards,

    Gordon

    I was wondering if that tunic from post 42 could belong to the visor that stonemint has posted in post 24 ?
    cause if it does I'm afraid the tunic has to go to my unsolved mystery pile as well.
    it stays in the same place then actually.

    Found this photo while trolling around. Probably 50s/60s. Note the yellow-piped hat

    this yellow piped tunic should be postal as well.
    must be early and if anyone can put a date on it that would be great.

    Stonemint,

    Thanks for the picture of the cap. That seems to settle the yellow pipping in wear by the DBP. The shape of the cap would put it in the 50s I would think.

    Regards,

    Gordon

    right, so ZB is basically the same as the DDR ZV = Zivilverteidigung. Thanks, Torsten.

    I think Nico did a little typo...

    ZB means "Ziviler Bevölkerungsschutz" - "civil population protection" and it is for sure a civil defence organisation. "Beamtenschutz" would mean "protection for civil servants"

    Ziviler Beamtenschutz? I have never heard.

    Do you mean Ziviler Bevölkerungsschutz
