    Hi Hal, as per usual, a quality item from you collection.

    I like a lot of the features to be seen in this blouse: the different shades of rayon used in the lining, the slightly crooked application of the collar rank gulls, etc.

    The piped collar (signals brown waffenfarbe) is a little unusual to be seen on a later dated blouse, but it is not a concern.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: I don't mind the long story if you have time to type.

    Hi Ade, this group consisted of: ( Reading this, word for word, from a file card kept from this motel buy); Mr. H--- 1979- Luft uniform, Political uniform(Pts-Jkt-Hat-Belt),2 wall flgs,4 hats,flare pistol,box misc.
    I sold the above listed items to a friend and fellow collector who had such a large collection that it had to be kept in a public storage facility. His storage unit was sold at public auction (yr.2000) for lack of payment,( another long story), and most of the collection was sold on eBay. I saw this item on eBay and recognized it immediately, as I have pics of the items I've purchased over the years, ( Photography an avocation), and bought it ($570.00) for considerably more than the sale price (75.00). Best Regards, Hal

    Nice Fliegerbluse....congrats
    IMO the collar piping was applied after issue...let's say for the "interest in one's appearance"....nice Nachrichten piping
    Thanks

    I agree, regarding the collar piping. This was officially discontinued(and ordered removed) in 1942. I feel that the outer piping was added after issue.

    Really cool tunic.
