    Hello Meindert and all members who posted in this thread,
    I'm sorry i can't post anything here, but i don't have any FJ item to post...
    As i mainly collect Heer, my only Luftwaffe items & garments are the usual ones, greatcoat, sidecap, Einheitsfeldmütze, belt & buckle and some fieldgear, but nothing related to FJ or FD (the other thread), no para helmet, no jump smock, no jump boots, nothing....
    My most impressive stuff from the Luftwaffe is a Zeltbahn 31 related to the Luftnachrichten Regiment 3 "Legion Condor", who served in Spain during the civil war. As you can see here, even the word impressive is a bit too much for such a usual piece of fieldgear.

    Walter Borg (ex-MI6) Agent and radio operator in Malta, Tunisia and Italy between 1941 and 1945. Arrested twice, tortured twice, escaped twice, survived the war...

    Its the same on my side, but i came across this grouping and it was
    offered cheap. I like stuff which is named to a vet and so i bought it.
    Any kind of tunic became then very special for me when you have a pic of the owner. On the other hand you know for sure that its a para tunic and not from flying personal.
