Shirts / Oberhemd & Hemdbluse

The East German military, police and para-military forces wore a limited variety of shirts that do appear to have changed little in appearance over the years. The shirt most commonly worn by career soldiers of all ranks was the jacket shirt, "Jackshirt" (Hemdbluse) for short. The jackshirt was worn with shoulderboards, giving the user the option of wearing it with or without a tunic, a practical feature in Germany's variable climate. Dress shirts (Oberhemd) in various colors were also worn.

The jackshirts worn by generals and admirals had gold pebble grain buttons and sometimes special features, including possible superior quality, but in basic design they were essentially the same as the shirts worn by other career ranks.

Female shirts resembled those worn by males, with some obvious differences.

The listing below is near-complete; annoying questions remain about how certain shirts were used.

The shirts listed below are in mint condition unless specified otherwise.
