The Uniform thing is winding down slowly, but I think as it gets all sorted, they are more complete and correct, We really put a lot of time and elbow grease into these, and now all the gaps in the WWI German uniform history has gotten pretty darn complete.
Well well what do we have here....We have been busy, and there are foreign volunteers spotted here....A Flemish-SS Volunteer and several Spanish Wehrmacht Volunteers. And a Hermann Goring Tropical, Panzer Troop. More on this later, I'll try to get more shot, and more stories in the near future. Mark.
OK, back from two week trip, and these 3 of the Panzergrenadier, the Spanish Volunteer, and the Turk-Tanker stories have been added to the site.
Got 6 n-7 new uniforms, but I'm going on a trip, so I'll add the story later-and the rest of the pictures, but here are 3 of them that are ready to go. First-a Ritterkreuztrager, Oberfeldwebel Helmut Thierfelder 6./Panzergrenadier-Regiment 33, Kurland 1944. Then General Agustin Munoz Grandes, Division Azul 1941-42, then we have and Legion Afklarungs Abteilung 236.
Recently the question has come up again of 'Is this all for sale' And it's actually going threw people asking threw my friends sites who help me get all this stuff together and laid out best we can. But the uniforms are mine, and I am not set up to use credit cards and/or pay pal and the like, nor to more them, I am old now and it is clear I will have to get this going, thing is, none of this is going to be cheap-I often have spent years finding where particular uniforms , insignia, and even medals and badges were used with whom and where and when-trying to get this all right. Now granted 98% are not real uniforms per say, but many have real. or what I thought was real insignia's and paid top dollar for a lot of the boards and badges, wee'd bee looking a an average of over $800.00 per uniform not the $75.00 or $100.00 that some may think-there I recommend one of the may reenactor site, I go there too, for some of my stuff and go from thereto change collars, sew everything on, and research the uniforms buy all the bits change buttons etc. But may be willing to talk with you in the future. I will be working on the situation by this winter I assume, see how things go, in the meantime-stay safe, and God Bless ya, I hope you like the site (as always still in progress,I've had big problem's when I decided to split the site in US. Uniforms and German/Axis uniforms, now 2 sites, and not getting any smaller.
Got some new stuff in a while back...l'm liking these...MS.
Not going to make any people from the Netherlands to happy, but here is another volunteer in the Waffen SS, another odd and unique uniform.
So then 'pop'ed' a couple more uniforms onto the sit- still have to add their story's yet, but its a start again. A SS NCO of the Wiking Division, and a Spanish Volunteer-operating with the Kriegsmarine.
Well-Hope people are hanging in there- with the Coronavirus treat, I have been trying to edit and upgrade my uniform websites, and came across this shoot- me and 2 of my buddies that work with me on the books we've put out, this was a get together, with Grant from Whidbey Island, and Cyrus from over in Montana, and Me from Edmonds Washington...met here at the Paul Allen Tank and Aircraft Museum at Pain Field in Everett Washington, anyways stay well my friends, stay safe in these trying time, things will come back to normal one day here. Mark.
Ok-been clicking away- getting uniform shot, edited and starting to get on site(s) so expect to see some new uniforms being added soon.
I did manage to get a couple more out of limo, and onto the site,, stories will come in a couple days. MDS.
I have taken pictures of some 27 uniforms for the site, and there is still more to shoot- getting them on the site might be tricky but I'm working on the problem...Mark.
The Study of Uniforms of the German WWII Armed Forces still grows, there are piles of stuff here matching Caps with uniforms, and try to shoot pictures of yet here, this winter I hope to get that done and start getting them on the site, Time has flown by and a lot has happened, and I have moved many uniforms with there stories an ( Re-Editing) in the process, has been a huge project for me, but soon, in a few month I hope the have the 2 sites separated- 1 for US (the-military-mar.com) and 1 just for the German (Axis WWII) stuff from this collection. I have the Wehrmacht pretty much complete now, that is Army Navy And the German Air force, and about 1/2 the Waffen-SS. edited and on the German Site (the-german-military-mark.com). So come in see what you can see. (Note these are historical replace uniforms), made by copying photos, and doing our homework on them, there as close as we could get, often the whole uniform is built around 1 or 2 items on it. so if you don't want you kid's learning about this or looking at the pictures, of the uniforms, re-frame from doing so...just trying to show this collection and tell there stories..
I have been adding more 'pictures' into albums here..as of date no 28 uniforms of the 'Heer' part of the German Wehrmacht of WWII, 25 uniforms of the Kriegsmarine of the same period, 62 Luftwaffe Uniforms on this site...so far- something like 3 more Heer-Uniforms can be built, and then into the Waffen SS Uniforms...and there is more of those the all the others...so this is going to take a while, and then the stories have to be edited and moved to (This Site) from the original the-military-mark.com but if you want to read them still, or see the pictures, that site still has them there as well, more com-pleat but in the removal mode...there being removed from there as they get completed here...so, here some of the most recently added, now these still need there stories....but there coming.
Oh...ya better show some of the Kriegsmarine that has been added to the site.
Well you gonna have go over these too.....enjoy.
I have been working on the site as much as I can trying to transfer, edit, rewrite, and re edit picture...many of the earlier one are pretty poor from years ago...but got threw the Grossdeutschland Division uniforms, went threw all the Luftwaffe, and the Kriegsmarine uniforms, and well into the rest of all the Heer Wehrmacht uniforms in the M.D.Stone Collection, well many are still awaiting the story too, but the pictures on the site are re-edited ones.
Well, OK, I've been a very busy boy...In more ways than this site, but have added, or moved many Uniforms to the site of recent, a bunch of Luftwaffe fellows. Get a load of this.....
Alright then, we're starting to get a handle on the resurrection of the site (this one just for the German Uniform subjects, if anyone is watching, I'm getting figured out- and hopefully with-in a month or so should have this all put together...
Watch this space- I've just started building this site, it will grow and get organised as I teach myself how to do this again...Mark.
