Middys, Sweaters and Exercise Suits

The East German Navy/Volksmarine issued a variety of blouses, known collectively as middys, to sailors, career and non-career. The listing below does not include every type of middy, as some are no longer obtainable and supplies of others are severely limited. Note: East German middys closely resemble those worn by the Kriegsmarine during World War 2.

Frequent weather changes in Germany make sweaters an essential item throughout much of the year, and at least three major agencies issued sweaters with distinctive unit markings. Armed Forces ("NVA"), Police ("MdI"), and STASI ("MfS"). These sweaters are very similar in design and color: olive drab, with a greenish tint. Grey sweaters without unit markings also exist, as well as specially designed sweaters for Paratroopers/Fallschirmjäger and possibly pilots.
