    My third bandolier


    I got my third bandolier today in tarn.

    not the best condition but I'm happy.

    Unfortunately I did not get a better picture of RBNR, sorry. it must come later when I have time to take a new picture.

    All opinions are welcome

        Very nice!

        By the way, I have a question - whet did they discontinue the production of bandoliers? They are not common in the pictures from 1944-45.

          8th of may 1945 - like all the other specific para gear. Although there was no big use for it they made jump pants, smocks, boots etc. right till the end.

            Thanks for clearing that up. However, stuff that you listed was used on the regular basis till the end of the war and bandos where almost completely superseded by normal Patronentaschen.

              No, eg jump pants were no longer needed in their special configuration: the early knee pads were long replaced by outer ones, still the trousers showed the slits to remove the earlier internal ones; rear pocket for field dressing was no longer needed as jump smocks had now enough pockets, etc.
              All other gear was needed, but not in large numbers as before crete, still they produced all in almost same setup and quantities as before.

                Thank you for your answer. I have one last doubt: were bandos distributed to FJ units until the end of the war or were they produced only to be stockpiled?
