UNIFORM & KIT ISSUED TO THE GERMAN ARMY DURING WW2

This pictorial library is devoted to the recording of "Uniform and Kit" issued to a German Soldier of any corps (includes Luftwaffe), during the Second World War. Consider it a virtual "Q" Store in German militaria. It is not exhaustive and will be added to over time. Any reader who wishes to contribute photographs and text will be recognised and credited with such information. I also invite collectors of other nation's militaria to forward content (please see our other countries listed on the drop down menu) - so that a comprehensive list of "Axis" and "Allies" uniform/kit is detailed.

THIS WEBPAGE IS CONSTANTLY BEING ADDES TO - SO PLEASE VISIT AGAIN

SS Totenkopf Belt Buckle

SS Belt Buckle

This is the type of belt buckle is generally associated with enlisted men and Non Commissioned Officers of the Waffen SS units. The inscription reads "Meine Ehre Heisst Treue" which translates "My Honour Is Loyalty". Original buckles are highly collectable, however caution should be exercised - due to the high volume of reproduction and 'fake' items on the market. This not only goes for SS style buckles, but all German items of militaria.
