Interesting 10 Jäger Gebirgs Jacket

Recommended Posts

Here is an interesting 10th Jäger photo. I am sure the buttons on the pockets serve no purpose .. in fact, I assume the pockets serve no practicle purpose either....tunic.thumb.jpg.39107f771221138eb629e6e35ca506f3.jpg

Hello , the pockets and their buttons must had have a purpose , it was not German practice to waste material for the sake of mere appareance,

They gave staff officers swords? 😉

from what I see the pockets are flat, and there are no functional flaps? you can maybe slip a match book into the pocket?

Chris , All German officers carried in the Field first a sword or sabre , senior NCOs too ,later a bayonet with officer swordknot , but this was practical ,as the bayonet knots carried by lower NCOs and troopers. the tunic weared by the Jager looks as a special garment ,a windproof jacket perhaps like those of the Mountain Troops ,

Indeed... I was refering to your comment that the Germans did not waste material for the sake of appearance ... I thnk we can agree that swords are about as useful as tits on a bull 😉
