TSD Truppensonderdienst (Verwaltung) Heer Officer Jacket

Recommended Posts

Hallo Gents, 

Im wondering about this “private buy” TSD officer jacket! It`s in red waffenfabe? 

The jacket has got initials on the lower front? Is this late war issue? Buttons marked with eagle? 


Any help is all help:-)

First of all I'd like to state that I am no uniform-specialist. But as nobody has responded so far and as "Any help is all help:-)" let me say this:    The red is perhaps faded carmine for vets. The buttons seem to be Weimar-era buttons with the Weimar eagle and the year 19.. - I can't read the last two numbers - should be something between 18 and 33 as the Weimar Republic existed only from 1918 - 1933. Hopefully it is not the very similar Bundesadler of the BRD (FRG). The fabric of the tunic is a garberdine weave which is unusual for WWII. Mostly these were made from Trikot weave. But, as I said, I am no uniform specialist.

This is a privately purchased Feldbluse M36 made out of fine italian gabardine for a reserve officer in the artillery.  Gabardine was quite common for privately purchased uniforms in the 3rd Reich. The shoulderboards have a Waffenfarbe of artillery Hochrot with a light gray Unterlagen indicating a reserve officer.  The caduceus-devices indicate administrative personnel.
