Title: Early SS Polizei impression
Post by: Antonescu on November 28, 2007, 08:50:04 PM
Well since now doing the 4th SS thought about going ahead and getting an early war SS polizei impression together. What would be needed to do so? Know would be Heer tunic with sleeve eagle is seen but what else?

Hey Robb,

Seems like they were using the Police blouse, but in a lot of photos it sure looks like they have Heer blouses with WSS eagle on sleeve and Police collar litzen. Some have fledgrau straps and other look more like the SS pattern. The cool thing that stands out are the Police style caps.

I wonder if those were feldgrau or the police shade of gray green?

Any ways here are a couple of shots that I had:

Interesting impression, I have also seen shots of them with the Police style decal on the helmet. Note officers with the Police style belts, I am sure the EM's have their version of the belt buckle as well. Another good detail is the SS membership patch on the one fellow's bluse.
