    hej Jan,

    I recommend your friend tries to find the out of print KM books by John R. Angolia: "The Kreigesmarine" I have Vol. 2 which has a lot of info on KM uniforms and the patches etc. The are a set of 3 volumes.

    Here is are a few link to some for sale:




    Hope this helps.

    If your friend only collects KM stuff, I recommend he contact "KM-Spain" (Eduardo) who is a member here. Does he have any U-boat items? I collect them.

    Hello all, I think there is not a list about Kriegsmarine uniforms makers, at least in my years of collecting I have not found it. I have seen many unforms and you can find many different makers on them, the private and the officials.

    The officials were only two:


    2- In Wilhemshaven: with black letters "OFFICERKLEIDERKASSE W'haven"

    The private were many, the most usual are:

    1- Armin Ketelsen from Weserm?nde, Cuxhaven and Bremerhaven.

    2- Th. Th?l from Kiel.

    3- Wilh Witte from Kiel.

    4- J. Robrech (owner Hans Thiele) from Kiel.

    5- Friedr. Driemeir from Kiel.

    6- Albert Streich from Wilhemshaven

    7- Niemann & Lappe from Kiel.

    8- Lafrenz & Kroll from Kiel.

    and many more from Cuxhaven, Hamburg, ....

    I hope this may help you.
