Kriegsmarine blue uniform display's, let see them

Recommended Posts

Not really a display, but my wifes grandfathers tunic.

Bottom right is a Bernd von Arnim cap tally (his ship).... I had to look over 10 years to find one, seems to be the scarcest destroyer tally... Murphys law....

Chris, really nice tunic, and more if it comes from your family.

Tunics with Narvik shields are very rare.

Yes this is the highest grade, the 4th, but it hasn't any device because this one is the quality model of the maker. With the blue cord could be for the rifle, machine gun or light flak gunners and observers, depending of the devices.

Thank you for the reply Eduardo, but i don't really understand all of it.

What do you mean with "it doesn't have any device"?

Do you mean that the km schnur was used for several parts of the kriegsmarine? The same cord for flak personnel, artillerie personnel etc.?

Is this what you mean?

Depending of the color of the cord (blue or blue and aluminium) , the color of the device (black, silver or gold) and the kind of device, you have the four grades of each branch.

- Devices colors: 1st grade black, 2nd silver, 3rd gilt and 4th gilt with the medallion (as mine).

- Rifle and machine gun - blue cord with circular groove devices.

- Light AA - blue cord with a winged shell device.

- Chief gun crews - blue and aluminium cord with winged shell device.

- Torpedo gunner - blue and aluminium cord with torpedo device.

I hope this is clear.

Ah, ok, so with device colours, you mean those eichels, i know what you mean know.

About the different types, could the following been worn by kusten units?

- Rifle and machine guns, would be obvious that they are for kusten units to.

- Light AA

Yes they can used, but is very rare to see pictures of KA men with the lanyard. I have one but only can see the blue cord without any device.

Very nice Eduardo, lovely set. I think that's one of the best and nicest things to do with a collani.

Is there anyone that has period photo's of the blue km reiter hoses in wear?
