    Just to share a few pieces from my collection and to show the transition through the 1990's onward from OD webbing to the latter flecktarn and the replacement of the stahlhelm to the gefechtshelm

    Very nice! Some minor things to note:

    1. The arm pocket on the left sleeve was introduced in 1993, no exposed velcro pocket stitching in 1994. Which means your Flecktarn stuff is 1994 onward, which would make the use of the OD webbing a little bit of a throwback (probably reserves still had the old kit).

    2. arm rank on the Goretex jacket is on the wrong sleeve Smile Should be high point to rear, low point to front. Also, the camo type were for a long time technically against regs, though it seems units on deployment (and Salamander would be such a unit) did wear them fairly early on.

    3. The beret is mismatched with the jacket. The color behind the badge (which is not regulation dress) should match what is on the shoulders. In this case you have red (artillery) on the beret and yellow (recon) on the shoulders.

    4. Your beer bottles all appear empty and in a neat row. Only full bottles should be in neat rows, empty ones in piles. Very Happy
