Love what we're seeing so far Tom. Great collection! I'm sure alot of folks were like me... used to see this stuff for cheap in surplus stores all over and never gave it much thought. Now I wish I had. They're great to display the 57 awards on not to mention any Bundeswehr badges and such that come down the road.

Looking forward to more. :jumping: :jumping: Thanks so much for sharing! :beer:

Plus it's great getting some activity going in this section again! :D

Dan :cheers:

I am blown away! That is an amazing collection. I had never even heard of BW Panzer berets, and you have two of them!

That medical officer tunic is absolutely gorgeous! I love how the blue color surrounds the sleeve patch. I have never seen the waffenfarbe displayed in this manner. Was this a short lived practice?

Paul, to my knowledge they still use the same patches, and they also have a blue beret with a snake badge. As far as I know, this is a doctor-dentist-nurse distinction, combat medics wear the same uniforms as the unit they serve in.

i actually have 5 in total :whistle::jumping: jonas is correct it can be found on most patches the medics is the "Zentrale Sanitatsdienststellen verschiedene Standorte" who are the central medical services of the bundeswehr

jonas the beret you are correct on but there are 3 types of beret metal badge for the low rank soldat, threaded badge for NCO (as private purchase) and bullion patch for officers shown below is NCO patch and metal:

    • I've never smoked a single cigarette in my 62 years so I can't compare, but I can say that I like Lapsang Souchong tea, having tasted it the first time when I was 16, and a sea cadet. I'm not a Brit, though.
    • 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
