Officer's Field Blouse Conversion
*Please call to place this order*
While most German officers wore their full-blown officer cut field blouse in combat, many chose a modified enlisted issue field blouse. Many photos can be seen of officers in the Army and Waffen-SS using standard M36 blouses with insignia, French cuffs and stand and fall collars applied to the issue blouse.
The photo at right shows such an enlisted blouse that a customer had us convert to represent a front line officer's combat conversion. In this case, it's for a major (Sturmbannführer) commanding a grenadier battalion of the 1st SS Panzer Division. The conversion process is the same as that performed during WW2: we start with an M36 field blouse add French cuffs and an officer's collar.ic
Base conversion includes M36 or M40 blouse, french cuffs, officer's stand and fall collar.
