I have another Police 'combat' tunic, but stripped of badges, I have found some collars but no sleeve eagle. It's in quite good condition all things considered. I also have about 4 or 5 breaches and a pair of 'combat' trousers. (& one belt)

I have only recently been getting into non-military uniforms and picked up some odd bits including RAD, NSKK and some political (SA) as well as a nice uniform to the red cross (DRK)

Below is a recent addition, the side cap.

Hello,

Your coat is  pre 1941 made model 1936, and is for a Meister (warrant officer) of the civil Gendarmerie.as denoted by the orange branch color.  The Gendarmerie functioned in rural areas without Schutzpolizei protection. It looks to be in nice condition.

Regards,

William Unland

Thanks William for your information. German ww11 uniforms don’t turn up in New Zealand auctions very often. This Mantel wasn’t too expensive at around $200us. It is is good condition although I think the cuffs have been altered.

Here is a similar great coat, although this is made of wool and lined with a dark grey blanket material.  Unlike your's, Gerard, there is no visible ink stamp on the inside to tell me when or where it was made or issued.

An M43 Police cap with metal badges and a sewn-in 'pinched' crown.

The crown is pinched with some stitches.
