Nice, I see the Landser is putting inferior camouflage complex to the test.

His tunic appears to be Frankensteins clothing counterpart! Looks like it's made from about 3 different tunics all spliced together.

It's an image from a Bolshevik photo archive on Stalingrad, dress standards slipped some what during the rattenkreig.
There's a fine distinction between war-worn and scruffy.

Genossen,
The use of the Jacket shoulder straps to attract lanyards for instruments ( Compass etc.) is interesting, in later more Progressive times German Soldiers ( NVA Soldaten) used the arm foliage loops on their Felddienstuniform to attract the lanyards to their Compass and Dosimeter Complexes.

Old habits....I guess once re-educated it could be reused for World Peace/Revolution and the suppression of Lunatic NATO :twisted: policies... :lol:


:D

Perhaps his epaulette buttons came off through wear and tear, or perhaps he was in a penal battalion and had his epaulettes forcibly confiscated (as in the film 'Stalingrad?)

Losing the epaulettes would also make it easier for him to drop any surplus kit quickly and just using the shovel to crack some Soviet skulls...

Genossen,
He looks to be carrying a Red Army Document Case by the look of the buckle on the shoulder strap over his right shoulder.... if so additional unlawful use of State Property charges will be levelled, the matter is under investigation.

In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, p**s and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet.
