"57ers"

There is nothing to combine with 57ers and cuff titles.

There is a German law from 1957 ("Ordensgesetz"), and there are additional official documents from 1957 and 1958.

All these decorations in the "Beilage" are 57ers (plus the lifesaving medal):

Here you can find only decorations in an official changed design, compared with the originals.

On cuff titles nothing had to be changed, therefore a cuff title could never be a 57er. Made post May 1945 it could not be an original, it could only be a copy or a fake.

Ps: here in this forum you can find some very interesting threads with sometimes controversal discussions about 57ers :whistle:

talltom,

The wearing of a cuffband during wartime was indicated on a post war ribbon bar by a small metal plaque on a ribbon. Here is an example of a ribbon bar with the KRETA cuffband shown.

Regards,

Gordon

talltom,

The silver wound badge was a nice addition to an already nice uniform. The hat appears to be from a later period but looks nice with the tunic. I'd like to see a picture of the makers label in the cap please.

Regards,

Gordon

Hello Tom!

I have a couple of those too, the earliest dating from the mid-90's and the latest from ~2000. The difference being drawings in the earlier and photos in the later. In the earlier version there's still arm patches of the divisions and some (even by then) disbanded Heimatschutzbrigade, while the later version only shows the remaining brigades of the divisions of the 90's (and the new 13th and 14th divisions). I'll see if I can dig them out from my "Cold War stash"!

As requested by Tom: Samples of Bundeswehr uniforms booklet of slightly later print, 1993 and 1997 respectively. The older still has drawings, and the newer is upgraded with photos. The flecktarn camo has appeared in the 1993 issue, otherwise it is probably almost identical to the 1970's issue. As the Bundeswehr went through massive changes in the mid-90's, a lot of the unit patches have disappeared, units have been renamed etc. Link to unit patches: http://gmic.co.uk/in...r-unit-patches/

    • 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
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
