As suggested by another member, Im going to start branch specific uniform threads. It seems that great uniforms are scattered across are 6,750 postings on 18 pages and to cover all branches on a single thread could be cumbersome. It is a mutual feeling that this consolidation of branch specific uniforms into one thread will perhaps provide an easier reference for visiting collectors. Fire away...I'll add mine after I set up a torso figure.

Regulation Feuerschutzpolizei 1938 model Feldbluse with bright karmesin piping throughout. This G.Assmann tailored tunic is dated 1942 and has black collar and cuffs instead of the later brown color. The pink color piping will properly show florescence under a black light.

Adjustable belt hooks at the sides of the tunic. These removable belt hooks, and the removable shoulder boards, indicate this tunic is a Feldbluse rather than a Dienstrock.

Great item!
But there are 2 things I don't understand:
1) As I know rank Obertruppmann was used only in FFW, not in FSP?!?
2) The blouse is made in 1942, as You stated. In this case there are not appropriate shoulderboards (without quer cords on shoulder side).

Jiri,

As these are removable boards I cannot be certain they are orignal to the tunic. I used the FW rank since the boards have black centers. What would the proper designation of this rank be for the FSP? This is the Kntel uniform plate for the FSP showing the uniform with shoulder boards that do not have the shoulder side cords.

Jiri,

This Feldbluse does have the interior first aid pocket. Since the tunic is only stamped with the date of 1942, I cannot tell which month it was made. It has a private tailor's label from G. Assmann in Halle a/s. As the rank regulations changed in April of 1941 and the cuffs and collar changed from black to brown in March 1942 the tunic should have been made between January and March 1942. It seems to me that this fellow retained his old Revier- (Bezirks-) oberwachtmeister shoulder boards that would be designated as Obertruppmann boards in the Feuerwehr. In my experience, it is common for policemen to continue to wear old style (alte Art [a.A.]) insignia, uniforms, and equipment well after changes in regulations.

George,
the practice of wearing old style uniforms (Alter Art) past the introductiondate of new uniforms (neuer Art) is something that is part of the regulation change.

It is found in every (or almost every) order that I know of that old stuff had to be worn out.

I have pictures of the pre 1936 Schupo greatcoat being worn over the M36 tunic untill well into 1938.

Pat, is your FSP tunic a Feldbluse like mine or a Dienstrock without the adjustable belt hooks? I love those Meister tunics!

George,

I'm going to say by the amount of use that it was a Feldbluse with hooks that are not adjustable.

Also here is a neat little post card from Knotel, showing Feuerwehr.

Pat,

I have seen the fixed belt hooks before on Fire Service tunics. I think they needed the extra support for the large leather or cloth equipment belts as shown in your postcard. Neat postcard by the way...part of a Tag der deutschen Polizei set and not a part of the original large folio.

Here is an interesting Fire Service Meister tunic that is either early Feuerschutzpolizei, Feuerloschpolizei, or Feuerwehr. It is made in the Polizei style without French cuffs and it does not quite fully meet any regulations (as those pesky Meister fellows seem to do so often) but I think it is probably Feuerloschpolizei. What do you guys think?

George,
These piped cuffs can be found, also on different ranks.

I attach two pictures. First shows frontal and back shot of the pre1936 Feuerlschpolizei tunic. (this one is different from yours in that it has slip-on boards, no piped cuffs and other insignia)

Second picture is a detail from a group of feuerwehr men. The piping along the cuff can (only just) be seen. No buttons are present on the cuff

BTW the Kntel drawing posted by Patrick also shows the piped Cuffs without buttons.

Hi ORPO

That is a nice early fire police tunic with that style of eagle with the ribbon at the bace of the oakleaves instead of the later X.

Here is my private purchase open collar tunic that has an extra button to allow it to be fully closed to the neck.

Ernst, Thanks for showing the photos. The second Feuerwehr tunic picture does look like it has the same cuffs as the Winkl one. The blue tunics I normally associate with Fr. FW are the ones with French cuffs. Of course period photos all show quite a mix of green, blue, and other various dress among Fire personnel, even in the same Zug.

Gary, I like that Winkl eagle too. The ribbon wreath binding really stands out from the normal X configuration binding. I noticed the fake Bevo style cap eagles that came out of Germany a couple of years ago did not get the X configuration correct and instead embroidered some sort of flower looking thing at the bottom of the wreath instead. These fake eagles were machine sewn to equally fake Polizei side caps in black and green with exotic pipings when they showed up in the US.

Has anyone found regs for when the combed helmets were worn? I thought the combs were for leaders, but there are photos of whole troops of FW folks wearing them.

Isn't this insignia combination incorrect for the Werkfeuerwehr? They should have a different style of collar tab - similar to the style work by the RAD EM's and Army Sonderfuhrer and the center of the shoulder boards should have a carmine stitching instead of black. Also the collar tabs are normaly lined up with the top of the collar - not the bottom. When the collar was open the tabs would normally point inward to the wearers neck.

Please keep in mind that there are many variations of Feuerwehr uniforms and insignia and quite a few intra-service transfers between the professional, volunteer and Factory Fire Fighting Forces.

Hello Diane

This tunic is direct from Angolia, if he liked it I have no problem with it. I would think this tunic is pretty late war as the collar patches are the bevo type.

I have never seen any fire police tunic with the RAD type collar patches or with the pink in the middle of the boards.

If you have one or anything that show this I would be greatly interested to see it.

The collar patches are machine sewn and everything is original to the tunic as far as I can tell, do not know about the eagle but who would!!

Here is the collar closed. I still do not see any problem. The collar lies flat but I would summise that is because the collar was never made to be closed, that is why the patches are matched to the bottom and not the top.

Pat, I don't have a scan of the repro bevo style eagles, but they are distincive in that they are an elongated "tall" grey eagle. The giveaway is the X shaped ribbon at the bottom of the wreath is missing and a "flower" with a center and surrounding petals is embroidered in place of the "X." Some of these were sewn onto reproducttion black sidecaps with green piping as well as police green ones with Gemdindepolizei, etc piping...all with fake rubber stamps and dates.

Gary & Dianne, In my experience there was a wide variety of Werkschutz and Werkfeuerschutz uniforms and insignia. Dianne is absolutly correct that there was a lot of "job sharing" among these folks as the photos on Gary's link show.

Pat,

Yes, this is the eagle that is a repro in my opinion. I know that some folks like this eagle, but it is a reproduction in my world. I saw the brown ones in German flea markets and the black ones were machine sewn to the entirely fake side caps that came out of Germany a couple of years ago. Not any other eagle, but this particular eagle...and put on during manufacture. The hats sold at MAX and SOS and have bogus (but proper) rubber stamps in the lining. The tip off on the side hats were that the piping did not come far enough down in front and back and the stiffening inside was made of plastic mesh instead of natural buckram. And, of course, they had this eagle on the front.

Here is the latest aquasition to come to the fold. Fire police with black collar and cuffs. Unfortunately I managed to pull a button off the thing with in a hour of getting it. Thats what you get when you try and fit a small tunic to a large body form, anyway here it is.

Gary,

A very nice early Feuerschutzpolizei Leutnant tunic. The eagle looks like another cello and bullion mixture with cello wings...correct? Don't feel bad about the button. I broke one off the shank the other day when putting it on a torso form. You can sew yours back on. I don't know what I am going to do with mine. If I solder it back together it will probably pop off the paint finish. If I replace it, the new one will not match the others. And to think, we are able to do this damage all by ourselves.

Hi Orpo

You are correct on the eagle, well spotted, to be true I never even noticed it, but on closer inspection it does seem to be of a finer grade than the bullion, thiner, but lookd subdued, this would have looked great when it was new, bright eagle with dull wings.

George, according to the regs the helm with comb were intended for the Feuerwehr, not the Feuerschutzpolizei. The senior Feuerwehr had combs with oakleaf decorations. Baer's book contains a significant error in translation which has led some to believe the helmets could be red. His translated volume describes the helmets as in the color of the piping-carmine.In
fact, the German word is translated as uniform trim cloth which was black.

Joe,

Many thanks for the correct info on the combed FW helmets. I think the red helmets that one sees were either used after the war or perhaps even manufactured after the war for fire department use. The red fiber and the plastic FW helmets are certainly postwar issue.

Dave,

Great picture of the female Fire Service members. Here is one of the green FSP jumpsuits for females. The ones they are wearing in the photo appear to be men's clothing instead of being made for a female.

This coverall has wooden buttons that button left to right instead of right to left. It also has sewn in gussets at the breast and a trapdoor in the seat. It is made specifically for female personnel.

Dave is right that is a super nice tunic and visor. I also like the belt with cross strap

I'm posting two district leader badges for FeuerWR. I think the top one is orig. but the bottom one looks very new and I'm just no sure about it. Anyway its a filler.

OK guy's heres a suggestion, if you want to keep these threads going why not start posting pictures of those caps and insignia, I know that some of you might find these insignia boring but they are some of the best made, so here are some more eagles. Thanks guys for the nice comments on those eagles

Gary,

It is nice to see the wide variations of these sleeve eagles. I think FW eagles are particularly diverse since there were so many manufacturers. You are also right about keeping the threads going. Here is my contribution...a Feuerschutzpolizei greatcoat for an identified Rev. Ltn. from Hamburg. I am sure this fellow had his hands full during the Allied firebombing of that city.

Collar detail showing the bright carmine underside of the collar. The collar top is black wool with carmine piping. The underside of the collar must have been very stylish when worn turned up. I have also seen velvet undersides on blue FW officer greatcoat collars.

My newly aquired Feuerwehr/Feuerschutzpolizei bayonet and belt rig which appears to have been together for years. The belt has a blackened catch that matches the blackened buckle. This Faschinenmesser was manufactured by J. Dirlam & Shne, and is a seldom seen maker. Their unusual logo is a collar button containing a J.D. and an S. The long bladed Faschinenmesser was worn by Firemen up to the rank of Meister.

Jiri,

Thanks for the kind words on the greatcoat. I don't know why this coat has the FW style boards instead of the FSP style boards, unless it was made prior to the new insignia regulations or he simply continued to wear the old style (aArt) insignia. Unfortunately, there is no date on the tag.

George:

The insignia is named: Hervest-Dorsten. Whats really sweet about the insignia is that the original owner cut away the green field areas (between name and eagle, under the wings-inside the wreath, closely cut around above the letters) and neatly applied ita fantastic detailed job. Ill try a picture but Im having a bugger of a time photographing the carmine color!

I dont think Ill be tired of this immaculate tunic any time soon!

Here is a new one I got today from Gerard. It is very unusual, the material is velvety to the touch with no shoulderboards having ever been fitted. The interior has no lining except for some sackcloth in the sleaves and the same material to make up the pockets. Collar patches seem to be padded and machine applied.

The arm eagle is not a type that I have encountered before, So I do not know if it is a repro or not, the deefinition of the eagle is great but the thing that throws me is the town name, seems to be too neat and in the wrong position.

Hi Gary,

From the mid to latter part of the war Police and Fire Police Eagles were often made without the town name (a simplification of the manufacturing process). When the eagles were supplied to the town the town named could be embroidered along the top by a local tailor.

We have to rememeber that the from about 1943 onward the Fire Police was reorganized and "nationalized" so that they could more efficiently deal with the wide spread destruction caused by aerial bombing. It was normal part of operations to have Fire-Police units deployed from smaller towns & cities to areas that had been heavily bombed.

For instance after the anglo-American Fire bombing of Dresden in Febraury 1945 Fire-Police units were dispatched from Berlin, Leipzig and even far away Hamburg to help put ot the fires and initiate rescue operations. Most of the Dresden Fire Police had been killed during the second wave of bombing and there was no one left alive to fight the fires.

The Fire-Bombing raids on Dresden were brilliantly executed in that they targed the most densly populated residential areas and were timed in such as way to cause maximum casualties to Fire-Police and rescue personnel engaging in rescue operations.

The Fire-Police issued a heavy denim type tunic meant for Fire / operationsal use. I've seen these tunics in a heavy brown / beige colored cordoroy material as well as a dark blue denim.

I like your tunic wouldn't worry about the sleeve eagle. This looks like one of those mid-late war style eagles where the town name was embroidered locally at a later date.

Diane

Gary,

Nice tunic. I agree with Diane about the locally embroidered town names. I see nothing wrong with the insignia.

Great tunic, Gary!
I did't know that such a material was used for FFW uniforms!
The eagle seems to be OK and I'm pretty sure it is original...the lettering is a little unusual as You said...
After Loehken's book (p. 149-151) "Feuerwehrmann unter 6 Monate" wore no shoulderboards.
Collar patches are in form used before 28.7.36.
(schwarzes Sammt mit karmesinroten Vorstoessen).
Piping was deleted 28.7.36 too.
IMHO this blouse is from "Uebergangszeit" (1936).

Besse is in Bundesstaat Hessen (here is the link):

I think foreign volunteers in the fire fighting service would probably wear the old blue uniform or coveralls like other volunteers. There are photos from various countries and these are the uniforms they seem to be wearing. For instance, I have seen photos of Czech fire fighters in the Protectorate wearing the blue uniforms.

I just finished reading ALL 680 pages of Littlejohn's "Defending the Reich."

Fascinating book! Pages 470 - 603 are devoted to Police & Fire Services, with specific sections on the Feuerschutzpolizei and Feuerwehr and Freiwillige Feuerwehr and even the Girls (Feuerwehrhelferinnen) & Pflichtfeuerweheren.

MUCH More also!!! Lots of great Patches, TR Period Photos, Uniforms, Buckles & Helmets.

Well worth the purchase for the Newbie or the 'Old' Guys, IMO. Txs, Dave/dblmed

BILL .....BRAVO! You've done it again! CONGRATS!

The ensemble is spectacular, can't see a moth nip anywhere.

LOVE the really long Black extended cuffs and the special piping which is seen all around the uniform.

That Officer's cap eagle is a pretty neat one - I haven't seen one with that much degree of depth and detail before (done in Aluminum).

What year time frame would this ensemble represent?

Thanks for sharing and educating! ...Dave/dblmed

The helmet was at his funeral in 1944 as his coffin, and then handed over to the widow. Slightly oiled it looks like new.

Captain,

A beautiful grouping, many thanks for showing it to us. Orpo is right as usual, we don't see many FW medal bars at all. Do you know if he was killed in the line of duty fighting a fire or something else?

Is it unusal the FW mann would receive an EK II for saving a soldier as opposed to the life saving award?

The owner came on 29 July 1944 when air strikes killed in Stuttgart. He was there with the firefighters in action and a burning roof has slain him.

His name was Richard Ambacher.

Not in this case. For the most valiant use under bomb exposure were a total of 5 firefighters from Kirchheim u. T. with the EKII excellent. Actually wanted the firefighters had their start providing room and were surprised by the bomb attack. Suddenly, they were probably the midst of it all. It was in the year 1943.

"That tell me the old lady and i read that also in the chronicle of the fire brigade from Kirchheim.

Kirchheim is a city 15 - 20 miles from stuttgart away.

Captain,

Many thanks for the additional information & clarification on the medals. I'd definitely say his death could be classified as "line of duty", certainly in service of the Reich. Terrific grouping indeed.

The uniforms will be next year as a loan in the fire department museum in Kirchheim be seen. There, I will issue uniforms as a loan. I think that they are very good and there is such a piece of history to the present citizens can give.

Captain,

Pictures of the gentleman make the whole lot complete IMO, it really puts a face on all the items & makes them much more personal. Although I don't collect uniforms, this is the type of group that would make me reconsider that, the condition is excellent & all the additional stuff just makes this a "must have" group. If you ever tire of it, I'm sure there's a dozen guys here that would go nuts to have this group, myself included Smile

My newest uniform of the fire brigade(department). If is a uniform of the work fire brigade as it was carried(worn) from 1942. The collar mirrors have been determined especially for work fire brigades. Special(Particular) in this uniform is the really very rare bracelet as I have not seen it in the original up to now yet. The uniform is original(authentic) 100% and extremely well-preserved. The stocks are colour-fresh. The eagle and the bracelet are hand-sewn. The collar mirrors by machine. Simply a dream piece which will enrich our fire museum.

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
