Third Reich Forstbeamte Uniforms & Rank Insignia

Unread postby General Chaos » Wed Jun 11, 2008 11:54 am

Hi, I have seen the rank insignia post for the Forstbeamte and it is useful as a base, however I have more questions as to what color the uniforms were and I have seen some variations on the rank insignia, including varying ranks of the equivalent of General, including a ranl that appears to be like that of Field Marshall of the Forstbeamte. Can anyone help me find this information?

Thanks,

Bri

Hi

This is not exactley up my alley, however if you give me some time I will find out for you. To do so I need to translate the appropriate sections of "Die Deutcshe Wehrmacht Uniformierung und Ausrustung. Band 1 Das Heer". I will try and get at it this weekend.

Sincerely
Larry

Hi Luke, I read that post already, however as I cannot read the rank titles or see the insignia very well I was requesting more information as in color plates and legible ranks.
