    The yellow tab is not Luftwaffe. What is is I am not sure? I have never seen a rank Litze (stripe) like that before? I am tempted to say Political.

    But the red tab is Luftwaffe Flak troops.

    Cheers, Ade.

    My first gut feeling about the yellow tab was SA, but the Litze's manufacturing style doesn't match known (at least to me) SA patterns and its color combination doesn't make sense with those yellow patches either.

    Just a thought: Could it be that this collar patch is for the Unteroffiziervorschulen/Unteroffizierschulen [NCO prepratory schools] of the Luftwaffe?

    Students wore yellow collar patches with one to three Litzen identifying their year at the school (1st through 3rd year).

    For a little info and a rare photograph, see: German Militaria Blog: Luftwaffe NCO Preparatory School

    (Students of the Luftwaffe's music school at Sondershausen also wore such collar patch Litzen identifying their year at the school, but apparently their collar patches were of a darker color. See: Lufwaffe Musikschule / Unteroffiziervorschule Insignia - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums )
