Wehrmacht (Heer) M36 Field Blouse (Feldbluse M36). The development of the M36 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. 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 5 front closure buttons and the recognizable four, pleated, front pockets. The field blouse is having a most likely reapplied hand-sewn BeVo-woven M36 type breast-eagle applied. The collar is having in my opinion reapplied machine-sewn generic type EM's collar-tabs. The tunic is complete with a pair of sew-in type shoulder-straps piped in 'Pink' as intended for a 'Soldat' within the 'Panzertruppen', the shoulder straps look original applied. The tunic has been period shortened, most likely for a small Panzer troop member. The interior of the field blouse is partially lined in grey/tan coloured cotton. The right, front-closure panel lining is marked with black ink size markings and the tunic is nicely dated 1939 (H39). The tunic is showing clear traces of usage and is in overall good clearly used and worn condition. Nice original early pre-war dated M36 tunic in good used and worn condition for a fair price!
