The BGS HBT-Drillichanzug (workuniform) was used in this version until 1977. Unfortunately, all badges are missing here!

here are some additional pictures of the BGS equipment, including some rare pictures of the BGS Paradebajonett (Ehrenwache), which was adopted and adapted from the WH.

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.
