Jäger Regiment!

Postby Steiner » Sun May 04, 2008 4:55 pm

Want to stand out from the average Heer unit? :|

Want an extra bit of bling? :)

Then let's become a Jäger Regiment! :D

Jäger were "elite light infantry" units and wore the following natty little bling on their right arm.

If anybody is up for it, we can get a job lot of insignia from Anthony at Bryansk! Sign up now!

Already got one! I always thought it was worn on the right upper arm?

I'm up for it - if it fits in my my impression as it is just now?

As far as I can see Mike, it does - I'm going to be putting a Jäger badge on my non unit-specific M40 tunic. 8)

Good stuff - if you can get one for me, chuck me it at Bryansk and I'll sort you out with the clams! :D

Update: requirements for a correct Jäger uniform are:

Jäger armbadge (as discussed)
Jäger metal cap badge (as discussed - unless you're wearing a helmet!)
Green Waffenfarbe on shoulderboards and Litzen (not infantry white!). Generic Litzen are acceptable, naturally.

Is there a nice Gucci Jager banner that we can add on our sigs? Also would much insignia be worn on a greatcoat or would most of it stay on the jacket? Cheers Jimbo

I'm pretty sure there would only be the Jäger badge on the sleeve of the tunic, Jimbo. :good:

As for a banner... I'm not sure how many (or should that be few?) are actually wanting to badge up as Jäger. For now, the Landser one will do. :)

As regards Waffenfarbe colour for shoulderboards, there is a lot of debate about whether it should be light or mid green. Many suppliers are in fact wrong! After looking at pics of some original Jäger / Gebirgsjäger s/boards (they were the same colour), it is obvious that they were mid-green colour like this:
ImageImage
(Ignore the unit numbers - that was an early-war fashion. As the war went on, they realised that allowing the enemy such easy identification of units was inept.)

By contrast, here is Panzergrenadier Waffenfarbe - a distinctly lighter green.
Image

However, I have picked up a tip from Herr Old 'Un, and coloured my Infanterie white s/boards with a felt-tipped pen! (Heh, I'm not sure if it's waterproof, since we always tend to buy washable pens in case of kid vandalism! :roll: ) Here are mine:
