Original Feldgendarmerie gorget from Jersey, Channel Islands

This gorget turned up a while back, I had known about it for a number of years but the owner had not wanted to part with it. Luckily when he did we managed to do a deal. I know it has one of the buttons missing but that just add to its general "been there, seen it" sort of thing. Hope you like it.
All the best from Jersey,

variations of the Bundeswehr camo

some people here might be interested in this cool militaria
Attachment 258434
One of the last camouflage patterns implemented by the German Army during WW2 was Leibermuster. Although never fully implemented by the Nazis, the pattern apparently retained an enthusiastic following within the German Army after the war, and was in fact produced in limited quantities by a Belgian military firm for the newly formed Bundeswehr in the 1955-56 time frame. As with the wartime uniforms, the BW version was never fully implemented.
Attachment 258433
At approximately the same time, another WW2 era pattern - Splitternmuster (splinter pattern) - was given new life as a general purpose uniform for the Bundeswehr. Although retaining many of the original characteristics of the Wehrmacht pattern, the 1956 version can be distinguished from the wartime era design by prominent white patches, indicating an intentional slippage of the print screens during production. The full pattern consists of grass green and brown splintered shapes on a blue-grey or green-grey background, with an overlapping pattern of thin grey-green colored rain straits. Produced between 1956 and 1960, the pattern was never fully-implemented into the Bundeswehr, being primarily employed by infantry and airborne units (as two distinctive styles of uniform), and were largely withdrawn from service by the end of 1960. Only privately produced helmet covers in Splittertarn might be encountered for the next ten or fifteen years. There were, in fact, at least two distinctive color variations of the BW Splittertarn camouflage, having either a pale blue or a pale green background color. It is unknown whether these variations were intentional or simply a product of mistaken dye lots or different manufacturers.
Attachment 258432
A variant of the Splittermuster pattern dating to the same period employs much larger and more prominent rain flecks. This pattern, Bundeswehr Splittermuster - starke, incorporates grass green and brown splintered shapes on a grey-green background, with an overlapping pattern of thick black rain straits. Also utilized by both infantry and paratrooper units, evidence suggests that far fewer uniforms were produced in this pattern, it being much less commonly encountered. In English, the pattern might be called "broad splinter pattern." As with the standard Splittertarn, both infantry and airborne unfiorms were produced in this camouflage
Attachment 258437
Introduced to the Bundeswehr in the mid-1960s, Schneetarn (snow camouflage) is a general purpose coverall pattern designed for wear by soldiers operating in snow-covered terrain. The design consists of needle-like patches of dark green blurred edges on a snow white base. The design produced in the 1960s employs lighter colored green in less density than that of the 1980s. Both versions are illustrated below. Standard items of issue are a hooded poncho (reversible to solid white pattern), as well as smock and overtrousers. Despite its age, the German Army retains this pattern for use by its troops.
Attachment 258439
Following a trend set by NATO allies Great Britain and France, in 1993 Germany began trials of a desert camouflage pattern based on the schematics of its standard issue Flecktarn. Initially nicknamed Tropentarn ("tropical camouflage," although the term was entirely unofficial), early versions of the design consisted of sparse dark olive & reddish-brown spots on a sandy background. This desert pattern would remain in the trial stages until 1998-1999, when the first official version of the desert camouflage uniform was introduced. Known officially as drei Farben Tarndruck der Bundeswehr (three color camouflage of the Bundeswehr), the pattern is also known among some collectors as Wüstentarn (desert camouflage), or Desert Flecktarn pattern. Although rumors have existed for years that two versions of the desert pattern existed, German sources indicate this is technically untrue. Early trial versions (1993-1998) may have had slightly different colorations, but the official version (issued in 1999) remains standardized, although the effects of washing with certain other types of clothing have a history of altering the appearance of the pattern. The three-color (desert) camouflage is the standard arid/desert pattern of the German Armed Forces, and is intended for wear in dry climates with some modest foliage cover.
Attachment 258438
Introduced in 2004 and officially known as Wüstentarndruck der Bundeswehr (desert camouflage of the Bundeswehr), the pattern seen below is primarily issued to German special operations units (although it is available commercially and has been worn in Afghanistan). Consisting of clusters of pinkish-grey and brown spots on a light tan background, the design is intended to perform in very dry regions with virtually no vegetation or plant coverage.
Attachment 258435
At some point in the late 1950s, Germany again revived a wartime pattern for the BGS, the old Wehrmacht Sumpftarnmuster (marsh camouflage pattern). As with its Splittertarn predecessor, the BGS Sumpfmuster pattern can be distinguished from the WW2 era version, although it is much more difficult, particularly with the early versions, and fake WW2 era items are known to have been produced using postwar fabric. There were, in fact, three consecutive versions of the Sumpftarn camouflage pattern produced for the BGS, each one associated with a particular group of uniform items. The 1st BGS Sumpftarn pattern consists of non-overlapping russet & olive green shapes (having blurred edges) on a khaki background with an overlapping pattern of olive green rain straits. A BGS style field jacket, smock, trousers, M43 style cap & shelter quarter were produced using this 1st pattern camouflage from the late 1950s until circa 1960.
