nodoby? it's an easy one... my best guess is tropical equipment, maybe muxed with summer panzer jackets? Ive seen pictures of tropical field jackets with neck panzer insignia, black rectangle and skulls, but I think that was some officer excentricity and not regular issue...

Summer panzer jackets?
Do you mean the green HBT type?
I've not seen tropical jackets with black rectangles only regular litzen with skulls on the lower part of the folded back collar.
I'm sure they did have the rectangles, just that I've not seen them in my searching so far which has been directed at Afrika.
