WH (Heer) NCO's M41 Field Blouse


Wehrmacht (Heer) NCO's M41 Field Blouse (Feldbluse M41). The development of the M41 field blouse can be traced back to April 1933 with the introduction of the first pattern field blouses. Modifications of the M33 field blouse had evolved into the M36 Field Blouse and in 1940 into the M40 Field Blouse which was followed by the M41 Field Blouse with minor variations. This is an EM's issue tunic which has been upgraded to an NCO's rank. The high quality wool/rayon blend construction field blouse has 6 front closure buttons and the recognizable four, pleated, front pockets. The field blouse is having a hand applied M39 style BeVo-woven breast-eagle. The collar is having original machine-sewn collar-tabs and silver NCO braid sewn in place. The collar-tabs are having the basic generic green branch colour, the different branches of service within the German army were allocated a particular identifying 'Waffenfarbe' (branch of service) color which was generally displayed on the collar tabs. An exception to this rule were the general service collar tabs (Einheitskragenspiegel) for EM/NCO personnel that did not utilize the branch of service color enabling them to be worn by personnel serving in all branches of service. Shoulder-board loops and buttons are present. The interior of the field blouse is partially lined in ribbed grey/tan coloured cotton, there is a small bandage pocket on the lower right, marked with 'B H.K'. The field blouse is nicely size marked (chest size 90cms) and dated 1941. The tunic is only showing minimal traces of usage, there is some minor (moth)damage on the back, the tunic is in overall good condition, see photos. Hard to find original M41 field blouse in good condition!
