WW1 German '07/14 Landwehr Infanterie Regiment Nr 382 Feldrock 1914 - Found In a Wall Cavity
Recently found in an Alsace wall cavity this 1907/14 Feldrock is from Landwehr Infanterie Regiment Nr 382 ( 44th Division ) & exactly the pattern of combat tunic being worn by the German soldier in the August of 1914.
Having lain forgotten about for many years until discovered during recent renovations it still has its '382' numbered shoulder boards & shoulder strap buttons numbered '7' with a very clear 'BAX XV 1914' date to interior lining. Further markings of ' BJA *** ' ( Only partially legible ) denote that this tunic has been through a repair depot at some point with the garneture mark 'f' for 'Feld' denoting that this was his working Field tunic & so his combat tunic worn when fighting. All of its front fly buttons remain with all three buttons to right cuff & five buttons to reverse of skirt. Both belt hooks still intact to rear.
A rare early tunic that would command a price well over the 5K mark in better condition this timecapsule piece has clearly seen much action during WW1 with the fate of its originall wearer sadly unknown.
