QUESTION: Sir: can you tell me anything about a relative of mine in his German uniform?  Rank? Outfit? where they saw service? etc. I would very much appreciate any information.

ANSWER: Thanks! Merry X-mas & a happy new year! I can not myself - except that they are German military uniforms probably from within the last 80 years. But you already know that. But I'll ask my friend lt. col. S. Bojerud and he can probably help us. So I'll come back to you when he has replied. OK?

Col. Bojerud has replied. The black uniform is from the German Army: Wehrmacht, Heere, armoured corps., Panzertruppen. It is for a private. It is from the period 1939-1940 or there around. Unfortunately it is not possible to tell you the regiment. That was showed on top of the shoulders and is hardly visible in the pictures. The other uniform is from the same period of time. The same problem with the shoulders. It too is from the Army. Probably also the armoured corps. It is the non combat (even off duty) uniform of a Gefreiter. OK?
