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

This is the Model 1942 Gendarmerie Feldbluse worn on active service. The simplified collar and cuffs are the same police green color as the tunic body and it has an interior first aid pocket and removable belt hooks. The breast pockets are pleated and the hip pockets are plain on this tunic. While this is the regulation police

George,
the tunic with the drawstring that was discussed earlier was in fact a Bergrock and not a Skirock.
The difference was sew-inn shoulderboards (Bergrock) versus slip-on shoulderboards (Skirock)

Ernst,

I believe it was the Bergrock under discussion earlier. My error. Removable shoulder boards were indeed called out in regulations for the Skirock. But, like the Gendarmerie Feldbluse above, some field blouses (also with regulations calling for removable boards) will be found with sewn in boards for some reason. This particular blouse appears to be early manufacture with a shiny brown lining instead of dull cotton and collar tabs with orange backing. It is not unexpected to find such uniforms that are not quite regulation in every detail in my experience.

George,

Very nice setup you have here

you are of course correct that personal adjustments did happen. Is there any evidence on/in the shoulder of your tunic to suggest that the owner did the sew-in adjustment himself?

If I am correct your Feldbluse is the Second model.
The first model did have the pleats in the lower pockets. I believe the pleats where abolished for economical reasons but where in fact part of the original order.

Ernst,

I did not know, or probably don't remember, the original order for the Pol Feldbluse called for pleated lower pockets. Do you know when this change occurred? I have misplaced my copy of the original order and drawing for the Feldbluse. At least I cannot find it right now.

It is entirely possible that the Gendarm had the sew-in tunic boards installed, but I can see no evidence of straps for removable boards. I have a couple of similar field blouses made with sew-in boards in this manner. After examining them, I can see no removed shoulder board loops on them either.

Gary, I very seldom see the woolstoff Gendarmerie field blouses but I run onto SCHUPO ones from time to time. I think there are two SCHUPO field blouses on ebay right now that are missing some insignia, so you might look at those to see if they interest you.

I am glad you put up this tunic. I will show a variation of your Meister Summer tunic that is also a Gend Meister. This fellow's Sommer-rock was made in the style of an officer tunic with french cuffs. Since a Meister can wear an officer quality cap with aluminum cords I suppose this fellow went one step further and fitted out an officer blouse with his NCO insignia. The tunic is dated 1943.

Dave,

You seem to have a model 1938 Gendarmerie Feldbluse with adjustable cuffs and adjustable & removable belt hooks. Does this tunic have a first aid pouch and removable shoulder boards? Is it dated? Show us a picture.

Someone earlier asked for a shot of a grey lower rank Gendarme tab. Was it you Dave? Here it is.

George: To answer your questions: yes, yes, and 1942. Eventually, Ill get around to a torso display and pictures. Lately, Ive been working on the collecting room and finally making some strides towards the right direction.

Gary,

It looks like you were a good boy too for Santa to bring you such a nice warm coat this winter. Is your greatcoat made of the lightweight hard finished wool with a sateen lining? I have a lightweight Schupo Medical coat made of the same material if it is.

Gary,

After looking at several hundred of these things you develop an eye for them. Sort of like being able to spot a WKC manufactured KS98 bayonet from 10 feet away because of their manufacturing quirks. Of course, as soon as you get too ****y someone shows you something you have never seen before. I have eaten enough crow over the years to know if you chew slowly...they are not so bad. In my opinion, Santa brought you a scarce greatcoat. I very seldom see the lightweight Offiziere Mantel as opposed to the heavier wool greatcoat. The fact that it is for the Gendarmerie is an added bonus on the rarity scale.

I will post my lightweight Mantel on the Schupo thread.

George

Gendarmerie Offizier feldbluse for active service, cut in the military manner. This tailor made field blouse is manufactured of police green whipcorp material and has the same color collar and cuffs as the body of the tunic. The six button tunic also has pleated breast pockets while the lower patch pockets are not pleated in typical police fashion.

Machine sewn Gendarmerie Officer collar tabs with dull aluminum Litzen on orange backing. The subdued aluminum insignia was often worn by officers on active service (combat) tunics in order to be less conspicuous in the field. The field tunic collar is the same color and material as the body of the tunic and is closed with two hooks and eyes.

Back of officer's field tunic showing the two panel cut with a slit tail. The same color cuffs are manufactured as French cuffs instead of functional cuffs with buttons. Note also that the collar is manufactured in two pieces and has a very fine seam in the back just above the center seam in the tunic body.

Thanks Gentlemen. Gary,I envy the condition of your goodies. Dave, you are correct of course...I reverted to Schupo-speak out of force of habit. Pat, I have some uniforms displayed on torso forms and some on clothing store racks. I buy the four arm cascading racks at the used store fixture outlet and they work very well. Over the years, I have gone to about every clothing store close-out sale I can find and pick up forms, hangers, etc at less than wholesale. Leaves me more cash to spend on something to put on the displays.

Here is the newest item, I do not usually trust these side caps but this one is a little darling, all the stitching is in the right place, but what capped it all for me was the lining, if you look closely you can see small yellow spots caused by mold. Very hard to reproduce.

Gary,

A very nice side cap. I have a Lubstein Gendarmerie side cap that is dated 1938 that is made in exactly the same manner. Does yours have a bamboo stiffiner in the crown to hold its shape?

Johann,

Nice uniform! You need a brown belt to go with it and you can put your black belt on a Schupo tunic. Your tunic appears to be the later style with darker brown collar and cuffs. Do the cuffs have functional buttons and is it dated?

Thanks George. I'll find a nice brown belt rig. Cuff buttons are fully functional. Tunic is placed and dated to Wien, 43. Tschako is marked Obw.d.G.d.R. Aleis Lantscham. ? hard to read. I'll take a few pics.

Ja Woll!

Johann,

It sounds like your Gend Meister tunic is made in the form of a 1938 Feldbluse. If so, it should have provisions for removable wire belt hooks on the inside and a bandage pocket sewn on the front flap interior.

The following Motorisierte Gendarmerie tunic is one of my favorites. Not mint by far, but loaded with real Ive been worn hard appeal.

Another Gend. tunic, something a little different: Functional cuffs, slip-on shoulder straps, two panel constructed reverse with draw, and belt hooks. Believe it was discussed before as a Schirock.

Another seldom seen tunic Dave. I could use one of these myself. A nice example of a specialized uniform to keep out the cold wind on the downhill slope.

Not named other than the manufacturer info on the inside and if I recall correctly, the tunic is dated 1942.

What I wanted to post was a feldbluse but the darn guy was smaller than my torso form, a real runt!

Dave,

Is this a Feldbluse? I cannot tell from the photo if it has provisions for the belt hooks on the sides and/or functional cuff buttons. Is your map case marked to the Pol...or is it perhaps a utility case instead of a map case? Very nice, as usual!

Sorry George, I should have commented a little further about details. No provisions for the belt hook on the side and non-functional cuffs. As far as I can remember, the map case is named and the one-piece high relief insignia appeared to have been attached there for some time and Im not going to mess with it since it looks neat.

Very nice set-up. I'm a big fan of the lower ranked tunic's. Looks great. Does the eagle have a city name?

Very nice motorcyle coat and greatcoat Dave. I think the lightweight greatcoats are very difficult to find in my experience. It is also interesting in that it has no French cuffs. Is it a private purchase coat?

Just picked this little birdy up.

Dave,

I wanted to add this to the "SHOW ME YOUR SLEEVE EAGLES" thread but it has been closed. Is there away of deleting what is not needed in the thread and reopening it. It's shows some very nice pics

Here is a great tunic I found this week at the local show. A most unusual tunic in the style of the M43 but piped, the collar is not added and the tunic is not modified in any way. There are no cuff slits or openings for the cuffs, and the back is manufactured in the M36 style a Fantastic piece, the interior is fully lined in cotton, but has no PO marks. I like it very much.

Bill, excellent displays and your Gendarmerie collection is rather evolved now...I better watch out! Smile

Hmmm, I think you need a rural police bayonet in the mix, which would fit in rather well with all that other brown leather!
