GEBIRGSJÄGER REGIMENT 100 M36 TUNIC
M36 field/grey tunic, made in wool/cotton, worn but still in nice condition, for a Gebirgsjäger Officer (Oberleutnant) of the 100 GJ Regiment. Tunic is impressive and it is untouched.
Field-grey, wool/cottonblend construction field blouse features a vertical, six button front closure with a single metal hook and eye positioned at the neckline.
The field blouse has four, pleated, front pockets with pointed flaps.
Collar tabs are machine stitched to the tunic as it is the Kreta cufftitle on the left sleeve, Gebirgsjäger Edelweiss badge and bullion chest eagle are hand sewn.
Tunic has a nice matching pair of Gebirgsjäger officer shoulder boards with a single gilted pip and the cypers "100", indicating the number of the Gebirgsjaeger Regiment.
Interior of the tunic is complete and cotton lining is also marked with measurements on the right chest.
An Iron Cross second class ribbon is hand sewn on the second button hole.
Tunic shows a slightly period wear and use and has the expected wonderful patina.
A very rare uniform, belonged to a officer of one of the most combative regiments of the Wehrmacht, that fought from Kreta to Russia, from Balkans to Italy.
An incredible piece of history.
