The following report on protective overalls for German armored car crews is taken from Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 1, June 18, 1942.

A German Army Council Instruction of May 7, 1941, authorizes the issue of protective clothing or overalls to the crews of armored cars. The suits are to consist of trousers and jacket, made of rushgreen drill, similar in pattern to the black field Service dress.

The suit will be worn either as a camouflage over the black Field Service dress, or as a summer uniform without the black tunic or trousers.
