GERMAN WWII ARTILLERY NCO TUNIC. DUTCH MADE.
During the course of WWII German occupation forces utilised many Dutch tailoring facilities and the use of captured Dutch cloth, this is an excellent example of one of those tunics, constructed on the basic M.36 style tunic, five button closure, four front pockets all with pleats, lower pockets of the non-bellows type, small vent to the reverse side, three holes for the belt support clips, dark green collar, fitted with a set of Bevo woven artillery collar patches laid onto a section of green cloth, which is then further laid onto the dark green collar. One moth nip at the point of the collar closure. A set of slip-on dark green centred Oberfeldwebel’s shoulder board with two rank pips with the regimental number ‘84’ between each rank pip. To the right hand sleeve a Krim Shield and a red lightning blitz. Iron Cross 2nd class ribbon to the second button hole. NCO silver Bevo wire breast eagle and a fire worker’s patch to the lower left hand sleeve. Loops for two awards with one set of loops for a short medal ribbon bar. Fully The tunic is totally undamaged, no moth, some slight wear to the nap of the cloth to the high spots of the tunic. lined in a blue grey lightweight cotton with full size stamping with the designation ‘A41’ which would stand for the depot at Amsterdam and a maker’s name of ‘Konersmann’. This is a very good example of a rare constructed tunic for the German forces thoroughly indicating their usage of the occupied lands.
