Re: Dry Transfer Decals

Im interested as well. Many units do not want the water decals, and I personally don't love them at all. I use the French ones, but they are hardly cheap, though very very good. I would love to know if yours is about as good, or even nicer, better!
thanks for taking this project on,!

Re: Krankentrager pouches

Medics were first German soldiers, and thus were armed as a matter of course. I have photos and have seen photos of medics (red cross arm banded men) even carrying K98s. They were to use the weapon to defend self, and patients.

Re: Original Gebirgsjäger photo Librery

Please keep posting. I'm not a GJ reenactor, more a luftwaffe type, but I love the photos.

Luftwaffe sleeve subdued rank?

I have read that the Luftwaffe Gefreiter and higher sleeve rank was changed in 1942 from silver to a subdued copper/brown lace. I never have seen any for sale on original militaria sites, don't think I have seen any on reenactors arms, and so, I am embarrassed to say, I can't find any info on it. Di...

IMA Folding Shovel- opinions needed!

I have two original German folding shovels, but they are starting to show their age. I don't trust IMA's ad copy very much, but I would like to have a shovel that is 1. correct, 2,strong enough to dig with, move fire pit logs around, in general do shovel like things, 3. and yet not worry that if I b...

face blackening

I have noticed over the years that many German Heer, FJ reenactors blacken their faces prior to tactical events. I know that Germans were aware, perhaps more than the US, how much a face stands out. Their 1942 era helmet nets ahve a face drape built in, the SS had face masks, there is at least one F...

Re: FJ collar tabs, color, source

Thanks for the help. I know Christan is a member here, and I have ordered some tabs from him. I have ATF and Janke/Bill Bureau also. while I have not seen Luftwaffe supplies, I suspect and believe that they will be good. So All the ones I have have an orange cast to the yellow. Yet, I would just lik...

FJ collar tabs, color, source

I am looking for a good, most typically coloured collar tabs for a FJ. I have read they were orange hued yellow. (as opposed to the more bright yellow sometimes seen). I am sure there was a range of colour found, but I have never seen even one original tab, and colour monitors being what they are, I...

Re: Show us you!

I would strongly urge you to look at lots of FJs with nets on their helmets- I have never seen any photos to my memory, that have the clips like yours on them. I know too, many vendors sell these and say they are good for the war time period. I also see guys in the unit I am with wearing them. But t...

Re: Greetings from Norway.

I always find the handle hitting my legs with the curve fitting into my hip. Was there a regulation way to carry it? For some reason I thought that the handle was supposed to be out, and not it towards the leg. I know the folding shovel was made so that the handle was away from the wearers leg.

Re: Must be genuine, it's got a stamp.

It looks exactly like one of my many postwar Russian raincoats, which were also tents, and blankets, etc. I doubt many things were marked DAK, and I seriously doubt a Soviet army Plash would be sent to Africa with those markings.

early green smock material

First, I have to confess, I have never seen a close up original FJ step in type two smock. I have never heard that they are anything other than a smock whose material is a mix of green and yellowish threads. This smock is on German ebay, and is a converted to type three from a type 2. This is a clos...
