German Uniform Size Stamps

Are you new to the collecting hobby and have you seen the size stamps inside German uniforms and are confused by what
these markings mean?

For example on these tropical Heer shorts and trousers:

Well, I don't know about other collectors but I found the information found in the below link very valuable in
learning about what the size markings represent. 

If you understand these you should avoid surprises if you buy something online -
there can be a big difference of what could fit a 12 year old or conversely Sgt Schultz neutral

I hope this is useful and that I'm not duplicating a previous post on this topic big_smile

Very interesting Markus! I had figured it partially out but without a guide for confirmation!    Barron
