  1. Hello Gentlemen! Today I present you the German Bayonet 98/02 with saddlebacks. It was usually part of the equipment of the non-commissioned officers (Unteroffiziere). This particular bayonet was found in a sewer and professionally restored. The handles and sheath were complemented. Here it is depicted in comparsion with the standard version which was later replaced by the 98/05 ("German butcher blade bayonet"). Bye, Tobias
  2. Sorry again for the mistake. Good news is: now I'm presenting you the actual bayonet 98/02. Please enjoy. Bye, Tobias
  3. Sorry, thanks for the correction! Yes, of course it is a Bayonet 98! The labels for the edged weapons vary greatly (especially in the postwar equipment), therefore I got one confused.
  4. Here are two steel helmet models (standard 60s and parachute jumpers) as they were used until the beginning of the 1990s.
  5. Hello Gentlemen, here are my Bundeswehr combat uniforms and equipment from 1956-1970. The first ones are green worker uniforms for fatigue duty. Bye Tobias
  6. Hello Gentlemen! Starting in 1976, moss-green uniforms were introduced gradually until about 1980 in the BGS and the police. Here are the old uniforms in dark green. Bye Tobias
  7. Hello Gentlemen, here's my BGS collection from 1952-1976/80. Let's start with the fight suit (Einsatzanzug) from the 1950s. Bye Tobias! BGS versus East German Borderpolice sniper (1955)! The East German camouflage suit versus the West German camoflage suit around 1955. Have fun with the pictures. Bye Tobias
  8. Hello Gentlemen, here are my uniforms of the Volkspolizei from the 50s. Have fun with the picture gallery! If you have questions or criticsim, I'll be happy to reply to your comments. Bye, Tobias! The East German Police Tschako was made of bakelite. The insignia were completed with the GDR badge in the autumn of 1961.
  9. In 1958 the uniforms of the border police were adapted to those of the NVA, but were still in khaki. Cockades and badges were still black/red/gold (up to belt buckle) until autumn 1961. Bye, Tobias
  10. Hello Gentlemen! From 1952 to 1958 the GDR border police received new uniforms in Soviet style. Have fun with the pictures! Bye Tobias
  11. Here are additional pictures of equipment and uniforms.
  12. Hello Gentlemen, the West German civil defence continued to use dark yellow of the WH as a camouflage colour after WWII. Bye, Tobias
  13. The equipment of the civil defense/fire department of the 50s strongly resembles those of the WH. Material (socks) from the WW2 was also directly taken over. Bye, Tobias
  14. In the 1960s the uniforms were blue grey. As a cold protection for the winter, a "Filzlausuniform" was worn, too. Bye, Tobias
  15. Hello Gentlemen! The forestry uniforms have been adjusted ever since the 30s to the Luftwaffe. Airblaster = Forestbluse just in the green version. This was the same after WW2 in the GDR, too. The GDR parachutists had no heels on their boots either. Much is based on tradition, too. Bye, Tobias
  16. Hello Gentlemen, here are my East German Forestry Uniforms from the 80s.
  17. Hello Gentlemen, here are some additional pictures of the BGS equipment, including some rare pictures of the BGS Paradebajonett (Ehrenwache), which was adopted and adapted from the WH. Bye, Tobias
  18. Today I'm going to show you the direct comparison of a Gubener GDR hunting hat and a WWII "Reichsforsthut" with emblems from shortly after the war. The "Waldbluse" corresponds to the same pattern as the WWII model and was used in this until 1990. The breeches were held in mouse grey, but also the stone grey of the NVA was used. The shaft boots had no heels. Bye, Tobias
  19. The BGS HBT-Drillichanzug (workuniform) was used in this version until 1977. Unfortunately, all badges are missing here! Bye Tobias During the seventies, green trousers were worn to the Sumpftarnsmock. The Genscherbogen was introduced only 1976 and afterwards also sewn on older uniforms. Bye Tobias
  20. The battle dress tunic from the "Filzlausuniform" could be buttoned into the trousers. At the beginning of the 1960s the Feldparker was introduced into the Bundeswehr. The Moleskin suit of the Bundeswehr that's shown here was used as far back as the 1990s. The jacket is from 1964 (unfortuntely fadet) and the pants from 1966 (in the best condition). Bye Tobias
  21. In the 1960s, the large and the small combat bag (breadbag) were intoduced as a pack bag in the Bundeswehr. Bye Tobias
  22. Hello gentlemen, here are some additional pictures to the combat suit 1956! Bye Tobias In the 60s, the Bundeswehr introduced the "Filzlausuniform". Here are the pictures! Bye Tobias
  23. The Bundeswehr camouflage combat uniform in mint condition from 1957. (And yes, the old belts were, in that condition at least, rather rare and expensive)! Bye Tobias
  24. Hello Gentlemen! Here's my uniform for a prussian soldier (infantry) from 1870-1907/15. This sevice tunic was produced in 1867-1887 (no sidehooks). The black trouser with red braid (1870-1895) had one little pocket on the right side (post 1895 the trousers got two pockets). -facine knife from 1864 -sword knot ( lost the crown) -belt buckle from 1847 -breadbag/haversack is the old type (white canvas) from marine infantry (imperial german navy), but identically contructed -canteen is from a swiss-depot and identically with the german 1867 canteen -the socket bayonet was for the Zündnadelgewehr in the 1860´s Bye Tobias
  25. Here are some additional images of my jackboots (1864/66). They include a comparison of a pair of restored and unrestored jackboots (definitely original). I got the unrestored boots from an attic in northern Brandenburg. One of the previous owners stuffed some documents inside of them, dating back to 1941 (see picture below). Bye Tobias
