  1. The German name for the dagger is: "Infanterie-Faschinenmesser M 1830" or "Bayerischer Jägersäbel" / Infanteriesäbel M 1838. Bye Tobias
  2. Hello Gentlemen! Today I present you the bavarian dagger (Faschinenmesser) M1830 with a adapted blade (with saw!!!) for the WW1 trenches. The bayonet frog and dagger sheath was from the 98/05. Bye Tobias
  3. Sorry again for the mistake. Good news is: now I'm presenting you the actual bayonet 98/02. Please enjoy. Bye, Tobias
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. Here are two steel helmet models (standard 60s and parachute jumpers) as they were used until the beginning of the 1990s.
  7. 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
  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. 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
  11. In the 1960s the uniforms were blue grey. As a cold protection for the winter, a "Filzlausuniform" was worn, too. Bye, Tobias
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Hello Gentlemen, the West German civil defence continued to use dark yellow of the WH as a camouflage colour after WWII. Bye, Tobias
