Feuerschutzpolizei Officers Uniform Grouping and I
A really nice set that was recently found in a house clearence in Germany. I was lucky enough to purchase the cap, tunic, belt and the owners ID card with a very clear picture of him wearing this exact uniform.
The jacket i would date to the early 30's from the cut with 3 neck hooks to the collar, no insignia was worn on the arm from what i can see. The uniform material is without moth holes and has survived in super condition, perhaps his ''walking out'' set. The clear makers label to the inside is the very same found in the cap, now thats a nice touch!
The cap is again in super condition with a nice variant chinstrap with buckle and clouser holes, and yes its the same cap as seen in the picture. The first pattern cap badge has been sewn on to the cap, i could have removed and added a replacement with pins but i belive this was period done, well thats my honest opinion. The cap as mentioned has the same makers label as the uniform. The belt is in unissued condition with supple leather and the two part steel buckle again in the same condition , it was also found with the group, its not an officers example as seen in the picture , perhaps an earlier belt of his.
Lastly is his ID book with clear photo of the owner in this uniform, its dated 1934. I was not lucky enought to purchase his WW1 ID book and dog tags but he was awarded the iron cross second class and black wound badge.
Great to find a uniform grouping with an ID.
