    These are dark blue glass buttons, which you frequently encounter on many different types of Luftwaffe clothing such as on jump smocks. Do you perhaps have also any Fallschirmjäger related items to show?.

    This is one of my Fallschirm groupings. His name was August Bose and I also have his brothers documents and phot album(he was sadly killed in Russia as a member of a Panzer Regiment), August was captured in Italy in 1945 and spent 2 years in British POW camps. He then went home and joined the Bundeswher in 1956 or 57. I have his BW uniforms as well.

    Cheers
    Gary

    He served on all fronts with FJR 1. I have around 220 photos of his wartime service and a lot of field gear plus his 4 pocket and visor cap which were at home when he was captured.

    Cheers
