Luftwaffe fliegerbluse for a Feldwebel with Kreta cufftitle and combined Pilot and observer badge
Luftwaffe fliegerbluse for a Feldwebel with Kreta cufftitle and combined Pilot and observer badge. A early 1939 dated Fliegerbluse with typical piped collar. The jacket is a good medium to large size fitting most modern mannequins. The garment features a combined cloth and observer badge, a Kreta cufftitle, a nice set of collar tabs and shoulderstraps. The badge, cufftitle and breast eagle are hand applied. The badge has the same age as the jacket and looks to have been on there for a long time. These early Fliegerbluses were made and issued without a breast eagle so it is typical that it is hand applied. I believe the Kreta cufftitle to be wartime sewn to the sleeve. The collar tabs are machine sewn with the prongs of the gulls all portruding the collar. The garment has a number of restorations to moth damages to the wool. This is not a mint garment by far, it is in strong worn condition. But if you’re after just that this one is perfect for you.
