Ord.40 Vareuse, nicely used and repaired. (Don't mind the other stuff at the right, this simply arrived the same day).
Ord.40, mountain troops infantry with excellent shooter bar.
Ord.40 with post-1949 patch configuration, Luftschutz collartabs, ammunition officer armpatch, came with 2
same sets of unit shouldersleeves, 2 loose buttons, and some tag on the shoulder that was never filled in.
Ord.49 that was paired with Ord.40 pants in about the same size and year. Machinegun infantry collartabs.
Some unit shouldersleeves, I've put the 47 pair on the Ord.40 tunic, as it seems earlier than the other ones.
So here's the question part, all about the 40-49 and the 49 types.
Were Ord.49 tunics actually ever fieldwear, or only for dress? I know the 1972 type with the silk liner were only
for dress, but these earlier ones don't seem to much different than actual combatwear.
There was some name for Ord.40 tunics with pointy shoulder-epaulets (as opposed to round) and the buttons to
keep the collar down, does anyone know what it was, and for who it was issued? (conscripted or contract soldiers
perhaps, or just officers?)
There's also 2 extra plastic buttons on the cuffs, my Ord.40 doesn't have them, anything special about those?
Again about the Luftschutz tunic, would this be for an AA unit, as it's an ammunition officer? Not sure if there are
other AA elements that deal with ammunition, maybe an EOD type unit.
