LW-Generalluftzeugmeister Visor

Article about: Gents-- I have long been a skeptic that these visors existed, given the fact that no period pictures have ever come to light of one of these being in wear. I obtained this one fully intendin

    Maybe some interesting information (had not seen this thread before).
    I know I dealt with this subject in "Headgear of Hitler's Germany", volume 1.
    With the pages 272 and 273 some headgear with the GL (Generalluftzeugmeister)
    insignia were shown.

    It was included in the book as the headgear was handed over so many years ago
    (1988/1989) and the one or the other expert said that it specifically was for the headgear.
    And so was done! I did not have the order as shown here, otherwise the text in the
    book would surely have been different!

    The introduction-order however, as published in the "Luftwaffen-Verordnungsblatt"
    from June 23, 1941 does NOT specifically say it was worn with headgear.
    The order from the Generalluftzeugmeister from May 27, 1941 (GL Nr. 2020/41 Adj.) says:

    as a part of the GL-uniform (Bestandteil der GL-Uniform), to be used for technical
    personnel (civil persons, known as Wehrmachtgefolge). This was the larger version, being
    6.5 cm. The start of the announcement states also: Zivilpersonen.

    You see it worn upon the breast, left or right, but worn with headgear I have not
    ever seen a photograph. So?? Who knows the one or the other GL-employee did
    position it onto his visored cap, but I do not believe it was actually meant for that
    otherwise the order would not have said "as a part of the GL-uniform"!!

    Here the order and publication:
