Wait, there is another meaning to this "different shades of grey":
Naturally, Uniforms should have a uniform style... due to the fact that the coat is produced by different factories, the shades of grey differ slightly. So, during official line ups you have one uniform in a row but everybody looks a little different because the colors don't match.
That's what I meant.
where the mountains are near, the beer is wonderfull and Octoberfest is around the next corner

In WWII the Wehrmacht marched along Champes Elysee once a week to demonstrate its power over the French. Organisators of the parade feared that some Frenchmen might remember that and felt bad about it. This is why they decided to use the Marders. So it was a sign of friendship indeed but there still was a shadow. I guess nowadays they´d march.
