Description: Sturdy mottled green cloth, sewn-in "Prym" or "Elite" metal zip closures with leather tongues and "Prym 6" metal push buttons. As with the 3rd model, the front with a continuous fly. The zip closure and a few push buttons removed, supplemental large, blue glass buttons (damaged, some missing), the fly reinforced with underlay. In addition, a pistol pocket on the right side, the left side equipped with a strap. Original sewn-in breast eagle on a green base. Straight hip and slanted shoulder pockets, reach-through slit to the trouser pockets in the side seam with stitched-on pull closure covering. Bluish cotton wind breakers at the sleeve ends, the pocket sacks of brownish cotton, on which is an illegible Berlin maker and size stamping "II B". Clearly used, with repaired areas. The classic "Knochensack, tr. "bone sack", visible in photos of Eben-Emael, Dombas, Narvik and on Crete. Disproportionately rarer than the 3rd model.
