Yes, one look at the twill and the 'aertex' section tells the story.
Various grades of these can be found, from the early tropical 'oilskin' pattern through to lesser grade cottons.

Re: Motorcyclist's Coat

Hi friends
many thanks for your replies....
I would buy it for a feldgendarmeire motorcyclist or a reconnaissance motorcyclist in Sicily 1943. What do you think about?

...and being a 1942 dated example then certainly can be viable for a North Africa scenario.
These were very popular with NCO's and officers as mentioned. They had a stylish, cavalier look to them.

Re: Motorcyclist's Coat

Hi friends
today arrived the mantel.
It is very nice.
Now I am going to beginning an NCO of the Feldgendarmerietrupp, 29 Pzgr Div. in Sicily, july 1943.
