GSG-9 Beret and Badges

Discussion in 'Christmas Auctions' started by Effendi, Dec 6, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Thanks to a friend, formerly a member of GSG-9, I am able to offer a couple of lots for the delectation of the gathered multitude.

    Lot 1. One official GSG-9 beret only. This unworn beret from the Kleiderkasse (QM) is complete with the attached GSG-9 eagle badge. The badge is firmly attached not simply inserted into a slot. The beret also still has the removable card/paper sizing label in place.

    Lot 2. One Bundespolizei arm patch, one set of GSG-9 para wings, one sheet of internal GSG-9 notepaper only.

    Points of interest: The German Grenzschutz organization has been renamed to the Bundespolizei (Federal Police). However, the GSG-9 has retained its name of GSG-9 rather than change to BP-9.

    The Bundespolizei have adopted a friendlier Blue uniform for public facing duties to differentiate between them and the other German police organizations. Along with the uniform colour change GSG-9 were intent on retaining their green beret colour rather than changing over to the blue that everyone else was wearing.

    In order to qualify to wear the GSG-9 para wings an operator has to complete 100 jumps after a parachute course that is freefall orientated.

    So, there we go gents get your inner Walt to dig deep and bid for these rare items to support a more than worthy cause. I have had permission to end the auction time for these items later as I was late putting them up due to being away.

    I will pay all postage from the USA to wherever the winning bidder is located.

    End time 20.00hrs UK, Sunday 11th December 2011. errrrrr..........if thats ok with YIM.
