Post subject:  which ss insignia?

Hi ,
I wonder if any of you could help me with which insignia to use on my M42 tunic and M43 cap,
would I use Bevo collar tabs and sleeve eagle? or the grey thread early? Im also unsure what type to put on the M43 cap :?
Im wanting to do a sort of generic SS load out from late 1942 to 1945? I have a pair of M44 pea dot trousers to go with them for now and will be getting a pair of M40 trousers later, any help on this would be great
P.S Im not the best at sewing Bevo patches :lol:

if its 1942 then no M43 cap and peadot only 44 onwards

I would recommend if its a generic WSS look go for type one plane tree smock and type one plane tree helmet cover and no camo trousers.

if you ar going for a normandy look in peadot no insignia on your peadot tunic at all.

Thanks for the advice Jon, was going to use the M42 tunic and M44 peadot trousers for late period, then switch like you said to M40? trousers (when I can afford them next) and smock with helmet cover, have put embroided insignia on the tunic to cover me from 42 to 44, would this be ok do you think?

As Jon says no insignia as in runes, only insignia would be to have the sleeve eagle on your pea dot tunic.
