  1. First of all I'd like to state that I am no uniform-specialist. But as nobody has responded so far and as "Any help is all help:-)" let me say this:    The red is perhaps faded carmine for vets. The buttons seem to be Weimar-era buttons with the Weimar eagle and the year 19.. - I can't read the last two numbers - should be something between 18 and 33 as the Weimar Republic existed only from 1918 - 1933. Hopefully it is not the very similar Bundesadler of the BRD (FRG). The fabric of the tunic is a garberdine weave which is unusual for WWII. Mostly these were made from Trikot weave. But, as I said, I am no uniform specialist.

  2. Hello Linasl,

    the resolution of the photos is not too good - I can't say whether the shell was repainted. The shell itself looks original (you could do a research on the RL number (which I can't read either) to find out which firm made the helmet. The next problem I have are the rivets - they look shiny in the pics (what they shouldn't be). So it could be that an original shell was repainted and refurbished with a new interior but without better photos I can't tell.

    There are many originals here:  http://www.warrelics.eu/google.php?cx=partner-pub-8434277705306939%3Amw1zup-hyt0&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=gladiator+helmet&sa.x=0&sa.y=0&siteurl=www.warrelics.eu%2Fforum%2Fcloth-headgear%2F&ref=www.warrelics.eu%2Fforum%2F%3Fs%3Db8d48a80dc11e029d8573104fd371a7a&ss=2845j616817j16

  3. Hello,

    this seems to be the old Reichswehr Feldmütze (did he serve in the old army already?) which was also worn later on - here the leather chinstrap was added and the new cockade. There is some info on these caps here:


    (post # 95, p. 10)

    Why he would wear this in 1939 I don't know - perhaps just for being photographed with the newly awarded EK?


  4. Gentlemen,

    should you already have this information, please ignore my post.

    Goerings Uniform (cap, tunics, badges etc.) his Reichsmarschallstab and the Interimsstab are described in UM (Uniformen-Markt 17/1940 (together with the other GFMarschallstäbe).

    It says: Interimsstab des Reichsmarschalls. Aus Elfenbein gefertigt, mit goldenen Beschlägen und schwarz-weiß-roter Schnur mit Quaste. Länge etwa 85 cm. Verzierungen auf dem Beschlag: Hoheitszeichen aus Platin, EK. und Hoheitszeichen der Luftwaffe.

    Rough translation (hopefully accurate enough - I don't know how to translate the technical terms correctly):

    Interimsstab of the Reichsmarschall. Made of ebony with golden fittings and black-white-red cord with a tassel. Length about 85 cm. Ornaments on the fittings: National emblem made of platinum, I(ron) C(ross). and National emblem of the air force.
