The livinghistory.ie forums don't really deal with WWII time periods. There are better forums for asking about such equipment.

Hi there Ciarán

Here are some of the better suppliers I have dealt with out there for WW2 German gear:
For general uniform items and field gear go to http://www.1944militaria.com/ or http://www.richardaunderwood.com/
For repro insignia http://www.nicholasmorigi.com/catalogue ... %20GERMANY

There are others of course - and many of these will be cheaper - but the quality is not as high as the above. When I started WW2 re-enacting I bought too much from these dealers only to find that I had to replace a lot of my gear to get things right but you live and learn!

For some items of field gear in particular I have also bought original items which are often much the same price as the reproduction stuff since collectors tend to go for the bling which keeps the more day-to-day soldat gear at relatively low prices. Two sites I have used in this respect include: http://www.wehrmachtmilitaria.co.uk/home.php and http://www.extraklasse.co.uk/shop/shop.php

Alles bestens/Swifty

I would echo what Swifty said, Richard Underwood is a great supplier and great bloke to deal with. Buy once buy right.

Check also panzergrenadier.net, an English speaking forum of all things Axis, with most of the groups in Europe have a presence.
