History and Info
The Waffen SS Peadot camouflage drill uniforms were introduced in 1944. A two piece uniform that was issued to replace the M42 smock. All other camouflage was to be discontinued according to directive 99. The uniform was made from a heavy herring bone twill and single sided. But a less common version was made from cotton. The field tunic was M43 style with four straight pockets and five metal pebbled buttons . The inside was a rough white colour with a partial rayon ( artificial silk) liner. Belt suspenders were also included. The only insignia permitted was a grey SS sleeve eagle. But many period photos show officers with shoulder boards and runic SS collar tabs attached.
The field trousers were mostly the Keilhose design. Tapered legs ans white cotton foot stirrups. The waist included two waist adjusters and a button pocket to the reverse. Also a small watch pocket to the front.Belt loops with buttons were standard.
Waffen SS HBT Dot Panzer Wrap. was basically the M36 panzer pattern so a double breasted jacket of HBT denim fabric. The fall collar unlike the panzer version had no piping but the shoulder boards we believe would have had a variety of colours, pink, red and golden yellow waffenfarbe . This later M36 pattern enabled the wrap to be button up and closed at the top via a metal eyelet. The cut was the same as the SS black panzer wrap rounded collar and a vertical front opening buttons were mostly black plastic
Collar insignia although not period was occasionally used. Runes collar tabs, either thread or BeVo versions.. The national emblem( eagle and swastika) was stitched to the right breast. This was the woven or BeVo variety. Black wool SS shoulder boards (Schulterklappen) complete the jacket.
