Heer and Luftwaffe General officer uniforms and insignia
Hello everyone! I would like to start a tread about the Heer and Luftwaffe General officer uniforms and insignia. Everybody who has any clear photos of the uniforms and closeup photos of the insignia (collar and sleeve tabs, shoulderboards) please post them here. The uniform owners can post the photos of their uniforms. In such case please take the pictures of the insignia the way they are taken by Michael Holverson of the Marshal's Baton (no need to say you shouldn't post HIS pictures here). It must be something like this:
1. The shoulderboard of Generalmajor Hellmuth Hiepe (War Relics).
2. The collar tab of an unknown General (Andreas Thies).
3. The breast eagle from the summer tunic of GFM von Bock(Andreas Thies).

Hi Makoff, how did this tread go? Can it see anything else on this page. Anyway, the Litze is beautiful, have a pair of them myself. I have collected General rank on and off for quote a while, just love seeing generals Militaria, not that keen on the Luftwaffe tho.
I have got up to a thousand good quality pics of that kind I retrieved from the web in some past ten years, but as noone seems to be interested in the stuff, I don't post them here. Though many Larish pattern tabs are really unique and one-of-the-kind.
Hi Makoff, thank you very much for the reply, if you have some spare time could you be kind enough to send me some pics,
Do you collect Generals rank to? Mikes web site is so informative and he is so helpful and a fellow collector. thanks again.
