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.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
