East german combat uniform

The first military units of the Central Training Administration ( Hauptverwaltung Ausbildung – HVA ) were dressed in police blue. With the restructuring of the Barracked Police (CIP) in 1952, khaki uniforms similar in shape and color to those of the Soviet Army were introduced. The desire for a separate "German" and "socialist" military tradition, and the consequent founding of the NVA in 1956, introduced new uniforms which strongly resembled those of the Wehrmacht. They were of a similar cut and made of a brownish-gray, called stone gray, cloth. The dark high-necked collar were later deleted, except on the coats from 1974–79.

In November 1964 deliveries commenced of 52 of the more advanced  MiG-21PF fighter (retired from service by 1988) and these were followed in 1964/65 by 82 of the improved MiG-21PFM which remained in service until 1990 (locally designated MiG-21SPS as the East Germans had confusingly designated some of their earlier MiG-21PF as MiG-21PFM! Some of these were also used under the training command). In December 1967 the MiG-21 PFM which was compatible with the under fuselage GP-9 gun pod entered service (designated MiG-21SPS-K in the LSK) with the last of 54 delivered in May 1968 (the last were retired in 1990). 

This helmet makes a great display item for anyone with an interest in military history. The fact that it is based on a WWII-era design that was rejected by Hitler, and that was later implemented by East Germany, gives it a unique history as well. Some accounts indicate that a limited number of the prototype of this helmet were used by military cadets involved in the defense of Berlin in 1945, and the fact that this helmet remained the standard-issue helmet for East Germany for more than 30 years attests to the fact that it was the most advanced design of any steel helmet ever made.

The widely publicized killings and rapes in places like Nemmersdorf by the Soviets led to a severe degree of fear in the entire German population of East Prussia. Those that could not escape the advancing Soviets were left to their fate. Wealthy civilians of East Prussia were often shot by Soviet soldiers, their goods stolen, and their houses set on fire. [35] Wrote Zakhar Agranenko, a playwright serving as an officer of marine infantry in East Prussia: "Red Army soldiers don't believe in 'individual liaisons' with German women. Nine, ten, twelve men at a time - they rape them on a collective basis." [36] Even Russian women liberated from forced labor camps were raped by Soviet soldiers. [37] The rear-guard units of the advancing Soviet armies were responsible for a large proportion of the crimes committed by Red Army personnel. [38] Soviet Officers like Lev Kopelev , who tried to prevent crimes, were accused of pity for the enemy and became Gulag prisoners. [36]
