Beautiful light worn M36 ‘Feldbluse’. This tunic, in my opinion, started as a M40 pattern blouse, made in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) at the end of 1940. The tunic was used as a soldiers ‘walking-out’ jacket during the war and was tailor modified to look like a M36 by replacing the pale green collar with a 36-style bottle green one. This was the case with many tunics back than, as the bottle green collar unofficially ment you were a veteran from the start of the war in Poland. The jacket received a nice flatwire eagle and white piped infantry collar tabs, together with a nice set of tailor-made shoulder boards, also in bottle 36-pattern green for the rank of Unteroffizier. The jacket was modified a bit for a nice and slimmer fit, by moving the bottom pockets upwards. These were all standard procedures, often observed with German tunics, as they were simply to long and modifying them became a somewhat of a fashion thing back then. The tunic shows a pair of awards loops, and has an Iron Cross ribbon attach through the second button hole. Above the pocket a ribbon for an Eastern Front Medal in present. The liner is complete and shows minimal wear. It is maker marked by KONERSMANN and accepted in the depot of Amsterdam (Occupied Holland) in 1940 (A40). Just a beautiful light worn M36/40 Feldbluse in very good condition!
