Went to school at Univ.Karl-Marx-Stadt (Chemnitz), under- and grad. Before
then, I lived in Berlin (Kreuzberg) and Freiburg (im Bresgau; Bad Krozingen).
Can't say that I did anything productive then.... :^)

Quite so. Actually, the RLM Feldbuch lists *3* blue shades: 65, 78, and
17. RLM 17 is very dark and greyish-- methinks it the color of certain
Luftwaffe uniforms. The color I have in mind is 65.

Ha! Shows what you guys know!! :) Well, of course, not everybody used
blue, as you know. The USAAF, RAF (later on), and the Italians used greys.
