BACKGROUND: On June 17TH 1936, Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler was appointed to the newly created position of Chef der Deutschen Polizei im Reichsministerium des Innern, (Chief of the German Police in the National Ministry of the Interior), effectively giving him full control of all police agencies within Germany. As a result of this appointment and the restructuring of all the separate German state police into a single national police force new regulations were instituted on June 25TH 1936 to bring about uniformity in dress for all police through-out the country. One of the new uniform regulations replaced the previously worn blue uniforms with a new style police green uniform that was utilized, with minor modifications, until the end of the war. Since the police were required to perform their duties in all types of weather, cold weather garments were standard issue items.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Police, teal green, wool construction winter hood with an internal padding, reversible to white. Original tie-tape attached. Looks to be a medium size. Rbnr# marked. Nice condition.
