    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    With that backing I would think it is a Luftwaffe belt. They usually aren't backed.

    Thanks.
    I know the backing color matches the luftwaffe blue but i dont think it makes it luftwaffe. I seen some different color backings.

    Hello,

    IMO not a Luftwaffe because there are brown .

    I think it is a party officers belt for all groupings can be .

    That can be Luftschutz ,DLV, DAF,NSKK and so on ...............

    I would have to say the backing does make a difference. The backing material on brocades match the uniform. Same thing with dagger hangers and marksmanship lanyards.

    Markus. Luftwaffe EM switched to black leather. Didn't officers switch at the same time?

    Thanks everbody.
    As to backing, i think it makes sense on visible items but not hidden like the back of the belt.

    ok, so the final judgment is that it is political belt rather than the army.
