Re: Foreigners in Japanese forces?

I bet there are lost ware houses in India, Manchuria, S. Korea, and all in S.E.Asia full of Japanese stuff. I have seen documentaries of N. Vietnamese fighting the French with Japanese stuff. Where is it now? I wonder.

Re: Foreigners in Japanese forces?

That is interesting! I never knew about that. I have seen pics of S. Korean troops in post war S. Korea armed entirely with Japanese helmets, Type 99 rifles, gear, etc.. Later they were issued US stuff I think. I wonder what happened to all that Japanese stuff?

I almost had to actually use mine!

Hey y'all, A few weeks ago I fumigated my apt for fleas. I put a can in every room when one was good for 600 or 6000 square feet (forgot which). According to the directions, at the prescribed time I had to go in there, open windows, doors, turn on bathroom exaust fans, A/C, etc to air it out. I near...

Re: Got my Sanjay DAK tunic and cap; Opinions please:

Hey Mario,
Forgive my frail memory or ignorance on the subject, but who is Mr. Pirschens? Does he have a website?
Thanks,

Re: Got my Sanjay DAK tunic and cap; Opinions please:

Hello all,
I have spoken to a couple of people "in the know" and it appears the Sanjay tunic and cap are not all that authentic in some ways. When I can, I will order one from someone like Lost Batallions or something.
Later,

Re: DAK white silk scarves and use thereof?

Hello all again, Neat pic Holz21! I love that DAK uniform. I especially love those DAK lowboots but could not find any in my size so I had to order regular German army lowboots. They are from ATF and are brown roughside out. I have read that by '42 and '43 some of the troops sent to Afrka were weari...

Re: Got my Sanjay DAK tunic and cap; Opinions please:

Yep, could be. I ordered a size 52 and it fits like a 48. But then again, I did not measure myself to be sure of my size, just thought I knew it. So I take full blame for it. I just got my German M42 Lowboots and sox from At The Front. They fit absolutely perfectly and are very comfortable!! And the...

Re: Got my Sanjay DAK tunic and cap; Opinions please:

Thanks Mario, No, I was not offended. I appreciate yours and anyone else's posts, opinions, advice, etc.. I might just try the guy you mentioned. Because I am going to have to order me another tunic and cap because these two are too small for me. The cap, although it says 23 (U.S. inches), fits my 1...

Re: Got my Sanjay DAK tunic and cap; Opinions please:

Hello all, Thanks. I will try to post some pics soon. The reason I went that route, with Sanjay and Replicators.com , is because he did not care what size you wear, it is made to your size even if you wear a 60 tunic. Most of these other more well known outfits don't make or offer things over a cert...

Got my Sanjay DAK tunic and cap; Opinions please:

Hello all, I need y'all's opinions about some aspects of my new tunic. I know that DAK insignia was different from mainland German uniforms, but I am unsure what is proper or authentic or not so I need y'all's opinions. I can always order new proper or more authentic insignia if needs be. As I said ...

Re: DAK white silk scarves and use thereof?

Hello Mario, Neat pics. You and I are about the same size. I just got my tunic and cap and they don't fit. I should have filled out the size chart instead of ordering what I "thought" was my size. But I might can have it altered. Yep, we are a long ways apart. There are DAK units here in the U.S., b...

Re: DAK white silk scarves and use thereof?

Thanks y'all,
Mario, where do you live or should I say where is your unit located. I wish there was a DAK unit near me that I could join even if I could not reeanact that much. I do love displays and LHs.

DAK white silk scarves and use thereof?

Hello all, I have a couple of questions: 1. know that the DAK troops were issued neckties with their shirts to wear under their tunics, etc.. But I have read about and seen mostly pics of DAK soldiers with nothing under their tunic other than those white silk scarves showing. Does anyone know where ...
