    ~ WW2 German Sturmartillerie Wrap Tunic And Trousers ~


    This is one of the more interesting German uniforms of the WW2 period. The Sturmartillerie uniforms of the German Heer are quite uniqe in the sense that they are a mix of many things. Their design is that of the Panzer Divisions double breasted wrap uniform whilst their colouring is the field grey (Feldgrau) of the Army divisions.

    There are many different anecdotal reasons for the different uniforms but it seems most likely that the upper echelons of the Wehrmacht simply wanted an easily distinguishable uniform for certain soldiers and one that offered greater hip mobility for dealing with the artillery process.

    Whilst most often worn by the Sturmartillerie, this uniform was also used by the anti-tank units, the Sturmgeschütz mobile fixed guns and the Panzerjagers. Late war there were also uniform shortages so there were also lots of mixed uniforms without any records to which units wore them.

    The uniform we have here is the double breasted tunic of the Wehrmacht in field grey. The piping is crimson, the buttons are a plastic in the same colour as the uniform. The collar tabs show the Deaths Head and the buttons on the shoulder boards is the traditional German dimpled silver. On the right breast of the tunic there is the swastika and eagle.

    The trousers have their original dressing ties at the ankle, an integral belt with the original buckle, the belt loops all intact and even the original ring fastening to the right side of the trousers. Panzer trousers are a rather rare find.

    There are two inked stamps, one in the waist of the trousers and one in the jacket. There is a further label that can’t be read as it’s been damaged by some fraying in the waistband of the trousers.

    All in all it is a very collectible piece in good condition.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The trousers from waist to hem are 41 inches long (104 cm).

    The trousers waist is 17.5 inches (44 cm) wide.

    The outer sleeve measures 25 inches (63.5 cm).

    The chest between the armpits measures 20 inches (51 cm).

    The distance from collar to waist measures 24 inches (61 cm).

    The uniform weighs 2 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The uniform is in very good condition for its age and its service.

    It shows some sign of wear with some holes around the ankle linings, presumably fabric rubbing against boot fittings.

    There is some wear to the liner waistband of the trousers unfortunately over what appears to be a stamp or label.

    The wool is still supple but with some signs of age and dryness.

    There have been some parts of the uniform where the dye has faded.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £20 or the set can be collected from our Portsmouth shop.
