I was wondering if anyone could give me some info on these Verordnungsblatt's. I have been told that there are copies of these at the MGFA in Potsdam

I was wondering what the format for them is, are they individual orders or a collection of them in annula books like the "Sammlung" that I have?

Do I ask for specific orders or for a specific year?

What do these cost on average?

And would anyone know if they deal on line or only in person?

Many thanks for your help

Hi Paul

That's what I am trying to find out, I think that I miss named them "HV"....I must say I find it truely unbelievable that the forum that I believe has some of the most eminent reaserchers in the hobby draws a blank!!!!

I believe these are what I am looking for. If I understand things they list the clothing , nebenfarbe/wafenfarbe orders for the Heer, there are applicable Verodnungsblatt's for the Luftwaffe and Kreigsmarine..........however I am not positive that these are what I am looking for. I would hate to dump cash on stuff not needed.

I wasn't sure exactly what you were asking for. If you mean HV (HeeresVerwaltungs) Verordnungsblattt, I've never come across such a thing, but if you just mean Heeresverordnungsblatt the full set of these are all available on CD-ROM.

Its a huge amount of material. and they do list thousands of orders relating to clothing and insignia and all sorts of other regulations as do the AHM (Allgenmeine Heeres Mitteilungen) which is ( also available on CD-ROM).

You can find them here http://deutsches-wehrkundearchiv.de/7.html

I think what you may have been originally thinking about are the Heeresverwaltungs-Verfügungen : Erlasse aus dem Gebiete des Kassen-, Haushalts-, Besoldungs-, Verpflegungs-, Bekleidungs-, Unterkunfts-, Bau-, Kranken- und Veterinärwesens.

These are listed in the MGFA catalogue but the Heeresverordnungsblatt mentioned by Gordon above may well prove very useful.

I am visiting the MGFA in early March and will see what they actually contain.

Hi Glenn

Many thanks for the reply. I truely appreciate the offer of help.

Here's my problem....when searching my Sammlung von Heeresverwaltungs-Verfügungen, in this case the uniform catagory in the index indicates an order 8/270.

So when I go to the specific order nothing is there it has the title but is blank.......

I have attached scans of both the index and the order itself to illustrate my point.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
