fear not, will get camera out over the weekend
Fantastic item. i have never seen one in real life. lol.
further pics as requested. manufacturer appears to be E.Reitz. no other markings viewable, including date. it can be seen that collar hooks have been added to lower section of blouse to aid closure. collar patches appear to have been stitched on and " wings " applied after with prongs piercing the collar. breast eagle is "zig-zag" stitched
I have never seen hooks like that! Very interesting. I wonder why they were placed there?
That is a very nice looking tunic!
Hi Geoff, it all looks really nice.
Hi Paul, this soldier must have been really concerned with his turnout, which would befit in with his membership of such a crack formation as the "Hermann Goring" Division. The fliegerbluse will gape slightly in wear I suspect, hence the addition of the two hooks and eyes, to give a smooth smart outline. I love little details like this.
I must say that I like this alteration as well.
