Re: Rommel the Great General

What kind of shirt is the general wearing?

It looks like a W-SS Sahariana shirt but those don't have lower pockets hmm

Chris,... it's probably some type of Italian Private Purchase Tunic, they had similar ones to this version, plus they had a waist belt.
So it's probably a mixture of Italian design - interesting indeed!

It's all good and well to sing along when the world goes along with a song, but the man
worth while is the one who can smile when everything goes dead wrong.

Re: Rommel the Great General

Do you mean Generalleutnant Alfred Gause?
It's a lightly converted Italian Sahariana tunic.
Great Photo.

Re: Rommel the Great General

Is he Gause? His face is mostly covered under the cap i can't recognize him.

Italian ha? So that would explain it. Thanks Mark.
