The Blue Bavarian Litewka is a pretty scarce item, simply because, in the postwar years and depression, it was probably the MOST suited uniform jacket for civilian conversion. For that reason you probably see a dozens of Fieldgrey tunics, jacket, blouses for every Litewka.

On the left is an unusual one with no breast pocket. Very occasionally when you see photos of groups of officers, do you see one without a breat pocket,

In the middle is one which belonged to v. Leonrod, ex Cavalry Officer then Flügeradjutant fo Prinz Ludwig, then Oberstallmeister to King Lüdwig III (The Bavarian equivalent to the British Royal Court's "Master of the Horse") then finally Obersthoffmeister (Lord Chamberlain) for King Ludwig III

Then the Überrock for von Leonrod with the Velvet collar of the Flügeladjutant.

v. Leonrod can be seen on both period photos below as part of Ludwig's entourage (He is both times on the right with the "Seen" in green)

Last photo I saved some time ago, i am not sure who it belongs to...l1.thumb.jpg.babdc503158dcf4b381913bb0472a134.jpgl2.thumb.jpg.827500aff955db9882063bd67b7ed186.jpgl3.jpg.a8fcce3660a58960aa6020edf7e16ac7.jpgleonrod4.thumb.jpg.2fa49b1c1211f1b16d22ac5f2b65203a.jpgleonrod4.thumb.jpg.241d939fc870a50f35a479b97bad7bdb.jpgLeonrod1.jpg.708d17cf4e46e06083a9b5d0792d0a60.jpg

So you got the Leonrod pieces? Congrats Chris.

I think I first posted that last pic in hte Castell thread - it is either from my collection or from the web, I'd need to check.

Hi, the uniforms and blue cap are are from his auction, the rest just added to complete the photo.

I was referring to the drink Chris - are you sure it was just him having a drink with himself? 😇

Duh ! That was AAAAALLLL for me! 😉

The 2 glasses came out of a garbage tip in old German positions in the Argonne... 100 years under the ground!

No surprises there 😂..... Cheers 🍻!
