Luftwaffe tropical field tunic for a Generalmajor and Blood Order recipient


Description

A privately purchased tropical Luftwaffe field tunic worn by a Luftwaffe Generaloberst awarded the „Ehrenzeichen vom 9. November 1923“ known as the „NSDAP Blood Order“. While there is no provenience of the original owner, General der Fliegertruppe Werner Kreipe was a high-ranking Blood Order recipient of the Luftwaffe.

Constructed with four pockets, this tunic comes with an open label and all buttons attached with rings which is typical for tropical tunics. 

Hand-embroidered general's breast eagle attached by hand. Small parts of the seam have opened. Slip-on pair of shoulder boards for a Generaloberst with three large size general's rank pips. Promoted once since small holes can be seen of pips early attached to another position.

Hand-attached "Blood Order" ribbon to the right upper breast pocket. One pair of award loops.

Signs of wear and age. No damage.
