This one has seen the front line

Post by argonne » Sat Aug 20, 2016 2:43 pm

Hi Gents,

Found this for a couple of days \:D/ RJB8 Tschako with its original Überzug, battle damaged and both with matching regimental marks and same size (57). First JB8, then RJB8 with green painted "R" over the sewn green "8".
But the best: identity of wearer (4/RJB8) is tracked and traced as the circonstances, the period and the place where he has been light wounded. This guy had the luck to survive the war.
A first impression, from the outside :wink: Then we will discover the hidden details :D

Thank you guys!

Oh yes, Ed, you are perfectly right! They are very hard to find, most of the time Überzug and helmet are not matching.
I own another matching lot, bavarian this time, but unfortunately without numbers on the front, but with matching regimental marks at the inside of both.

And this excellent Schako gives the proof that on an Uberzug sewn and painted letters/numbers can coexist. It is the first time I see this special feature an genuine example.
