THAT is a beautiful tunic. Very nice. The cufftitle is interesting as is the fact that the eagle does not have "Werkfeuerwehr" above it. I guess the cufftitle was sufficient or takes the place of the eagle designation.

From 1942 the local names about the eagles were forbidden, because of the enemy's clarification. Because the collar mirrors were carried(worn) in this kind also only from 1942, you could be right. I also think that it as a substitute(replacement) served to expel(deport) the work fire brigade.

Next of my uniforms is the uniform of a captain of the fire prevention police of 1943. The uniform is so complete to us comes from the area of Hannover. She exists of cap, jacket, catch string, field braces, EK 1 in 1914, police leader's sword with Portepee and pendant as well as the suitable trousers. If a bargain purchase was for less than 2000 euros as I could effect him this year. Or do you find it too expensive?

The uniform of the captain had some moth holes which of the previous owners already allow to repair many years ago competently from an art embroiderer with authentic thread again.

What else can I say, outstanding and quite stunning. With the sword very special. I have always liked the carmine pink piped tunics. Beautiful schirmmutze as well.

Congratulations.

Hi All,
I have collected for 40 plus years and have had numerous firewehr/firepolice uniforms but never kept any. I got one about 6 months ago by accident.A dealer at a gun show I used to manage asked me if I would be interested in a German uniform his son had got from the vets family, I said yes and here is what I got. Missing one collar tab and I have bought two sets off of e-bay but neither match. Hat came from e-crap.

Looks good. You can see where the wide fireman's belt wore down the wool in the back. Clearly an actually used tunic. Collar tabs are pretty cheap. I would buy a pair and replace both rather than try to match the one on there. Hat looks good too.

My newest acquisition. A uniform of a fire service man of the fire brigade(department) KREFELD-UERDINGEN AM RHEIN. This fire brigade was one of 80 which was converted from 1939 in a professional fire prevention police. The jacket can be dated exactly, because from 1940 the town only KREFELD was called and the district UERDINGEN was not listed any more especially. The collar mirrors indicate it also clearly that it is an occupational firefighter, because these are bordered with the silver cord. A nice document piece for the short time of the blue uniforms at the fire prevention police.

This is a very nice tunic, but I think it dates from an earlier time. The nickle buttons were in use by the Prussian fire fighting services from 1934 without a sleeve patch. The creation of the national police in June 1936 introduced the sleeve unit designations as seen on your tunic. New tunics created after this date were proscribed with matt aluminum buttons.

This uniform became demonstrable till September, 1939 thus gertragen. Then only as a result of one has introduced the field-grey uniform. Because old uniforms were to be applied, this fact was nothing the special(particular). Thus it was carried(worn), e.g., in Berlin still(also) in 1942 blue with shining(pure) buttons(knobs). See also here: http://www.feuerwehr-orden.de/ Simply uter historically the fire brigade(department) decorations of the third empire click and look at the picture of the granted a loan.

Has informed me right now. The blue Prussian uniform was carried(worn) on the fire service till approx. 1940. Then from 1940 the roughly granulated buttons(knobs) were in the blue uniform. Then from approx. 1941 one changed bit by bit on green with black material trimming. From 1943 the material trimming then like at the general police became brown.

The initial statement that the rock(skirt) comes from 1939 remains right completely
