Well Done PaulR and thanks for sharing!! I really love Luft tunics..especially fliegerbluses..which were real sleepers price wise for quite a while..and now are really climbing up there in value..your Luft medicall officers fligerbluse is quite nice..I've got a Luft arty same rank.and is one of my favorites.I think your getting into the Luft field at a good time..its going in my opinon to becme much more collectible as the army tunics have risen to the point where a decent M36/M40 M43 are approaching 2K..and SS collectibles have reached heights which are quite prohibitive.

Thanks Scott!

I love the medical major's FB as well. I feel very lucky to have it!! Is is a very nice EM conversion example! I am looking for a nice centerpiece tunic for my collection at this time!! I would be forever happy if I could find a nice General Staff, HG, or even Field Division tunic!

I dont know why I am so attracted to LW tunics, but I cannot get enough of them!!! Because they are so cost prohibitive, I also collect the tabs. I am two waffenfarbe away from having them all!!

Lets keep the tunics coming!!

Regards
Paul

PaulR,

Very nice stuff you have there. I am interested in collecting Luftwaffe tunics, but, at the moment my only Luft item is a field grey officers M-43 cap. What area of Maine are you located in? I am in the Norway/Paris area. It's nice to see a "neighbor" on this site.

Hi Harry,

I am in the Westbrook area(near Portland).

It is nice to see another Maine resident around! How far is Paris from here?

I would love to see your cap. Please start another thread so we can see it!

Regards
Paul

It's about an hour north of Westbrook. I'll try to post a thread about the cap. I had it on a long time ago, but I could use fresh opinions.

Thanks,
Harry

Here is one that a friend of mine owns. It is named to a fighter ace and Knight's Cross recipient in JG-300 with 34 victories including 14 at night in 20 sorties. 17 of his day victories were B-17s and B-24s with two P-51s and a P-38 Lightning. He was shot down and killed on 24 December 1944.

No. The Knight's Cross belonged to Oakleaves recipient Korvettenkapitan Klaus Feldt in Motor Torpedo Boats. The German Cross in Gold is etched on the back to an Oberleutnant in the 4. Fallschirmjager-Division. My friend bought the EK1, Assmann-marked Pilot's Badge, the Fighter Clasp in Gold and the ribbon bar, although the ribbon bar isn't right for this recipient. He also bought a nice Luftwaffe Officer Service Cap - a nice early piece. This tunic is dated 1937.

Here is a close up of the collar piping and tabs. Nice early blue/silver tab piping. Anyone know anything about he green collar piping? Did all wartime officials have this, or was this specific to their specific speciality?
