    Battle jacket

    Recommended Posts


    I wasn't sure where to post this one, but since the jacket is british, I decided to try it in the british section. This is not what I normally collect, but I have this battle jacket in my collection. I got the armband a couple of weeks ago, and I thought that they looked good together. I will try to find a photo of this combination in use. I believe that I have a few photos somewhere. The battle jacket is late war, with an armband from the norwegian resistance movement (Milorg). The label states that it is a "Blouse, heavy duty dress (khaki battledress)", and the date april 1. 1945. These uniforms was used from the german surrender, and onwards. The armband was issued to all members of the resistance movement, and can be found in many variants. In the days immediately after the surrender, these armbands was often used on civillian clothes, to identify them as members of the resistance. Please feel free to move this post, if it's in the wrong section.
