Magpie - I have a pic of a Heer panzer NCO with black wrap and tresse, but I can't figure out how to post. PM your email if interested. I thought I had a Waffen SS one too, but I haven't seen one yet.

That's ok, it doesn't take much imagination to figure out how it would've looked. It was just something I wondered for a long while, I found the uniform worn by Karl Otto Alberty in Kelly's Heroes interesting and something ive never encountered before.

Thanks again.
This is a story you'll tell your grandchildren, and mightily bored they'll be!
