East German Items

Recommended Posts

Good Morning...

Seeing how I have a few hours, I would like to take the opportunity to share with you my East German items. I will start with the uniforms...

I have them grouped per organization. If there are any questions or comments, please do post away!

Kind regards

Eviromental Protection(on the right)

And some sort of Water Police... If someone could ID this tunic on the left, it would be greatly appreciated!

Paul,

According to the cuff title, this is the uniform of the Harbour Police.

I am amazed how much German uniform tradion was retained by the DDR. While these items have probably not been too difficult to acquire in recent years, the sources are sure to dry up in the near future. You have the makings of a good museum.

Here is an unidentified DDR Police Major's tunic. I have never seen one quite like it
