SS Camo used by 22. Infanterie-Division

Post by Hermastodonte » 30 Jul 2019 18:50

Hello everyone,

According to some known photos of Fla-Bataillon 22 on the Ostfront and some new ones of Infanterie-Regiment 65 that emerged on eBay recently, the 22. Infanterie-Division seems to have received a batch of SS camo smocks and helmet covers, as early as spring 1941. At least enough as to equip some of its combat units with it.
Does anyone have information on that matter ? Did the Heer performed a field test with SS camouflage with the 22nd?

Thanks in advance for all your infos!
