2nd Pattern Tropical Heer tunics in Afrika

Does anyone have pictures (preferably un-published) of 2nd pattern tunics in wear in Afrika that they would be kindly willing to share? I would highly appreciate any pictures and I'm sure others would too!

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I posted this in my photo collection thread.  I think the soldier in the middle with the AKcufftitle is wearing a 2nd pattern tunic.

Regards,

Jerry

Here's a nice clear image of a faded/worn example. Taken by a New Zealand soldier (I have the rest of his photos - taken on a captured German camera which included images taken by the German owner).

Jerry and Mark,

Thanks so much for sharing and also putting up those pics so fast! They are fantastic shots! Having a 2nd pattern tunic (pictures to be posted soon) it is nice to see more images of them in wear other than the few we all know of in the books. The pictures from the captured german camera must have been very fascinating for the New Zelander when he had them developed!

Simply great...thanks guys! If there are more, would love to see them! :-)

Mark,

I have a hunch you obtained this pic from the same book as the two gas sheet bag pics!? I only say that since I have the same book and it's one of my favorites for Afrika. The picture is stellar! I first saw it in another book when I was very young (10 or 11) and always credited it toward playing a roll in sparking my interest in the Afrika campaign!
