German World War 2 (WWII) Plane Tree (Platanenmuster) Faded Autumn CAMO

Waffen-SS Plane Tree (Platanenmuster). The term refers to the Platanaceae species, better known as the sycamore. The first material of this pattern was produced in 1936 and continued until 1944 - there are several variations of this pattern. The pattern is reversible with a summer and autumn side. It is printed in two tones (giving the impression of three) with a black overprint. Used for eg. helmet covers, smocks and zeltbahns.

The earliest Waffen-SS pattern, "PlainTree" or "Sycamore" was introduced before World War II. This pattern was discontinued in late 1943 or early 1944. Most uniform items of the period were made using the Plain Tree pattern. The pattern was revised many, many times and produced a number of unique variations. It is interesting to note that some versions of Plain Tree contained patterns very similar to Oak Leaf. It seems that the Germans may have used this pattern designation as a series of experimental designs, many elements of which would find their way into other patterns designs.
