Org. Todt Uniform


Recommended Posts

Here is a newly acquired Organization Todt tunic. I got it from a very reputable dealer, one I have dealt with for many years. The tunic itself appears to be a modified Heer tunic. It was not uncommon for paramilitary units such as Todt to use other service uniforms. This tunic came with the armbands removed and you could clearly see the stitch marks where both bands used to be at. I have since added replacement original bands. Unfortunately, the tunic is bleached out so no visible markings anywhere else. 

Org Todt units were primarily construction and engineering units, using both military and civilian personnel, and later in the war period, forced labor. Some of the projects they were involved with were the autobahns, V-1/V-2's, the west wall and Atlantic wall. The NSKK often supplied Org Todt with transportation (NSKK was another unit that utilized uniforms from various branches).
