Grenztruppen Rain Cape
From Operation East Wind
This is recommended equipment for East German Grenztruppen participants.
It is recommended that East German Grenztruppen participants bring a Grenztruppen rain cape.
- These are still available but getting harder to find.
- East German versions have a tartan plaid liner.
- Soviet officer rain capes are a good stand in but do not have the tartan plaid liner.
Wearing the Rain Cape
Carrying the Rain Cape when not worn
