Luftwaffe flying troops flight blouse - Oberfeldwebel

Description

A very interesting flight blouse for a Feldwebel serving with "Fliegende Truppe" branch. It is tailored from a quite unusual cloth you don't see very often. I could of Dutch origin. The tunic itself is not dated but maker marked and size stamped to the cotton lining. The buttons are all complete and the insignia are originally attached.

Machine-embroidered EM/NCO breast eagle attached by machine. Machine attached cotton collar tabs and NCO tress. Matching yellow piped Oberfeldwebel shoulder boards. The tress of the boards and of the collar are absolutely identical.

While the tunic is a depot issued example. the shoulder boards were privately purchased after the promotion. A tailor had sewn them in instead slipping through loops.

Both original aluminum belt hooks in place. Originally attached driver's professional sleeve badge with gold cord to the left sleeve.

Minor mothing. Medium size. Good condition. Very rare!
