Here are some photos that I took of my friend's collection. Bob
Bob, this is a dream...I never undestands one thing, why the ss colar was green like the wh uniform, black will be normal with the ss cap band
The dark-green collar was introduced on the M1935 uniform. It was very popular by the troops, particularly officers. Officers, including Waffen-SS, were given a uniform allowance to buy their uniforms. So many went to tailors and ordered the M1936 with pleated patch pockets, French cuffs and dark-green wool collars. I don't know if the dark-green wool collar had anything to do with the dark-green cap band on Army service caps --- quite an interesting theory. Early Army and Waffen-SS enlisted uniforms also had the dark-green collar; however, they evaporated before too long.
