    Hi Buddies,

    I just receive a bad news today.
    Laurent Huard who was co-author with J-P Borg for the book " Feldbluse " is dead. I had the chance to exchange some mails with him some months ago.
    He was a really knowledgeable collector.
    You will miss everybody.
    My sincere condolences with its family.

    Paix à ton âme.

      German Army Uniform Regs/November 1936

      Hallo Alles, I have a question.... Please help!!!!!

      The Brian L. Davis book entitled, German Army Uniforms and Insignia 1933-1945 has a picture, somewhere in the mid-book, that shows a German Army Medical NCO, with his bicycle, being interogated(sp?) by the Ami's in Normandy somewhere. The Medical/Sani NCO is wearing an Officers cap and what looks like an Officers quality Feldbluse. The text below this photo states that the Medical NCO was allowed to wear this officers accoutrements by order dated November 1936.....

      If anyone can actually find this order, or perhaps steer me in the right direction...... I would be very grateful

      Danke Sehr

        It is on page 98 in the English edition. The caption is wrong on several counts. He is not a oberfeldwebel but is a a Feldunterarzte or Unterarzte-a medical Oberfahnrich or Offizeranwarter. The collar insignia is worn under a 1934 order and the officers cord is worn under a 1936 order. He also was not a prisoner according to a German book I have seen they were negotiating a truce to remove wounded and evacuate civilians from and area of fighting. The details for Fahnrich uniforms are in Angolia/Schilcht Vol. 407-409
