Revell 1/72 German Navy (02525)
Lt.-Commander (1940), Seaman (Parade dress 1939), Seaman (Boarding dress 1940) Petty Officer (Obersteuermann 1942 & foul weather dress 1944), Commander (1943).
The German Navy uniform used during World War II was basically that introduced in 1848 for the Prussian Navy, and based on that of the Royal Navy. There were basically three types; navy blue for normal wear, white for summer and tropical dress, and field grey for land based personnel. During the war the most common type of head-dress for all ranks was the side or boarding cap. Petty officers wore a peaked cap and chin strap, a double-breasted reefer jacket with shoulder straps, white shirt, black tie, long trousers and black shoes. Sailors serving in land-based units or in landing parties wore the standard uniform according to the season or climate with a steel helmet and Army personnel equipment, as well as trousers rolled up to mid-calf and worn outside the marching boots. From 1938 personnel in naval artillery units wore field grey.
