Superb Michel. I love the Bordjacke. Last time I was over at the U-Bootarchiv they had several sitting piled up in a corner. They had been recently donated by former U-Boot crewmen !

Outstanding pics. Great tunics. Why did I get rid of my Kaleu? To buy more Heer stuff? Too many things, not enough money.

Michel , a very nice collection of unifroms - I would be delighted to own any of them :beer:

I would be delighted if you could give some close ups of the shoes worn by the "tropical officer".

Thank you for the chance to see your outstanding collection , first class.

Thank you for posting your awesome collection. If I were to name a favorite KM tunic, I would have to name the Bordjacke as well. If they could only talk...

Yup, my wifes Grandmother did not want the smelly thing around so she gave it to the local veterans association, which P'd her grandfather off. The old guy was happy when I went there to fetch it back and its been in my collecting room ever since.

Military or Medical ?... he spoke a bit much in his dotage... a number of dashing U-Boot aces who shhepishly had to come to get themselves (and on occasion angry wife) cured of a packet.

Anyway, those are not to be retold. At some stage I will show all his stuff.

:lol: It is nice to know that sailors are pretty much the same world wide. Since being a medic, I have treated many cases of "unmentionable disorders" ... I can understand! Well, I would be interested in ANY stories that you can post... Military or medical.

Stunning Bordjacke!! There was a recent discovery of 2 leather rain deck jackets and a U-bord jacket similar to the one just above. They sold at a country auction near me (Amish country PA, USA) for only 300 USD each. I was the second bidder :angry: and lost out!! I nearly cried....

Cheers,

Steve

Another U-Boot Bordjacke more easy to find. British pattern 37 battle dress reconditioned by the Kriegsmarine. Sadly, often it is impossible to say if it is a wartime made or after.

These can be dangerous for sure. I saw one which had German size marking etc stamped inside but was a pattern not used until after the fall of France so could not be one of the captured stock. Price of course was much more than a regular British battledress blouse.
