Waffen-SS field uniform in Erbsentarn camouflage
A nice original combat worn Erbsentarn uniform. This set surfaced early 2018 when a old milk factory in Münster, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany was demolished. The garment was hidden inside a hollow wall and was has been there for over 70 years.
The garment consists of a field blouse and a pair of trousers intended to be worn over the woolen uniform. The blouse still retains its originally sewn BeVo sleeve eagle and its original glass tunic buttons. The buttons on the sleeves are of black bakelite. I can not find any markings in the tunic. The trousers are also in similar worn condition and has a large period repair in the back. The trousers are marked Betr. Ra. indicating production by Betrieb Ravensbrück or Gesellschaft für Textil- und Lederverwertung ( Texled ). The uniform is in good used condition and has holes here and there but still retains its nice camouflage colours. I have seen several “sets” but this is the only one that I’ve had that makes up a original worn together set.
