"The uniform regulations of November 19, 1896 prescribed a new corduroy waffenrock for the enlisted men of the Southwest Africa Schutztruppe. Like those of the officers, it was:

"made of sand-colored corduroy fabric, in the same cut as the Prussian Waffenrock, but with an angular cut, turn down collar provided with a pair of hooks and eyes for closing, Swedish cuffs. Collar, cuffs as well as piping from cornflower-colored cloth."…"

I've known Tim for many years. It was only after the first couple of years re-enacting AWI together that he mentioned his interest in SW Africa and wargaming.

He and Roy Jones are probably the two most knowledgeable people on this period in history here in the States.

Thanks for sharing this Armand. I'll let Tim know.
