I have a question is it possible to combinate my normal luftwaffe greatcoat with a flakhelpers cap?
I see on some pic helpers with normal luftwaffe gear like the overseas cap etc .
Thanks in advance.

The HJ Flakhelpers wore their own unique pattern of greatcoat.

Good question period photo' show a lot of HJ items mixed with Luftwaffe I think in his book "A boy defending Hitlers Third Reich" by Wilhelm Gehlen he was a HJ flak helper Willie talks about getting his stuff from the local Luftwaffe or at least his helmet was. timothy
In the final months of the 3th Reich the last cannonfooder, i mean soldiers most likely used whatever equipment they could use to defend their ruined homeland.
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

Towards the end of the war common drafted soldiers were issued everything from WWI rifles to Luftwaffe caps. If it was a uniform they gave it to the rookies.
