I was lucky enough to pick this up at an auction last year. Unfortunately the large arm eagle had been removed but I recently tracked one down and had it reappied and it looks the part! Will take another photo and post it

Hi Goldfasan...what is the Luft cuff title?
I think these are even better than SS ones. I only have 3 Luft cuff-titled tunics..."Horst Wessel", "Richthofen" and "Hermann Goring".

My God Tristan,

Those are beautiful! I have three medical tunics as well...

Medical LW Major Fliegerbluse
Medical LW Sanissoldat
Medical Heer Unteroffizier


I love the medical tunics! If you ever tire of them... I can give them a good and loving home!

Please share them with us.
I have one other Medical tunic. An interesting conversion from Waffenrock to Service Uniform ( very similar to the ones shown in the new waffenrock book pp. 448-457).
This example has taken the piping off the front of the tunic , but not the inside!

Very nice...I do like the Fliegerbluse. They are very collectable things. Weitze had a Flak one on his site a few weeks ago but I missed it...Ah well, we can't have everything. Collecting would be very dull if we could!

Hi Tristan,

Thank you for your kind words. The medical Fliegerbluse is a rarity indeed. I feel very lucky to have it. You are right... it is difficult to find everything. I still have an extensive list~

Regards
Paul
