Did the Panzer truppen that got issued U boat jackets change the silver buttons to
The black urea ones or where some issued with them?
If possible, could people upload some pics of them wearing them?

Cheers

I've got two pic and the one has the silver buttons then the other picture, the bloke has the black urea ones on it. I can only guess they might have changed them due to silver being shiny.
I could be wrong mind lol
Also, did they wear the panzer wraps underneath or just a shirt?
And last one, did any ever pin they're tank assault badges to them?

Cheers

over wraps / shirt - either - depends on the wether Most normandy shots show the wrap worn.

awards - some wore on the leather - but not common - mostly left on the wrap.

Metal buttons shown in all the pics I just checked.
