Hmmmm. Could it be a captured stock tunic? Strange it appears to have no pockets at all yet still seems to be wool material.

Watching with interest to see what others can come up with.

Hello,

Could it be an old Waffenrock tunic back in service? No pockets, also the same amount of buttons to front? With HJ shoulderboards and normal collar insignia?

Thats what I've come up with, as the Dutch 're-make' tunics do have a few more buttons but have pocket flaps on the top and bottom.

Wilhelm "Willi" Hübner was awarded with EKII after recapture of Lauban in March 45.He served as messenger and distinquished himself during that battle.The men are from Führer-Grenadier-Division they are stills from a Deutsche Wochenschau. Here is a youtube clip of him in the 80s

Nice pic.

Colour or colourised? I'm guessing the latter. The skin tones and uniforms all look a bit too same-y.
