    Hi Folks.
    First of all Happy New Year to you ALL :-)
    Could some kind sole tell me what color shirt and tie was worn with the service dress uniform of a Luftwaffe officer "pilot" and a Obergefreiter of the Flak Artillery.

    Cheers
    Kev.

    The following shirts were used by the Luftwaffe:

    A mottled blue shirt with a detachable collar.

    A collarless white tricot shirt (for NCOs and other ranks only). This shirt could only be worn underneath the Fliegerbluse, Drillichbluse and Waffenrock and only together with the collar liner.

    A cloth shirt with attached collar. This was introduced in 1943 and replaced the tricot shirt. Initially, it was manufactured in a grey-green color for the "Herman Göring" division, the field formations, for mountain service, paratroops and airborne troops and in a blue-grey color for all other personnel.
    The blue-grey shirt was discontinued with an order of 19th Sept. 1944, with the grey-green shirt to be universally worn by all personnel.

    A dark blue shirt worn by flying personnel after ca. 1942. It came in long- and short sleeve versions.

    A light brown shirt with attached collar for wear with the tropical uniform. This also came both in long- and short sleeve versions.

    Privately purchased white shirts of various types for walking out- and evening dress. Officers could also wear white shirts for office duty and for all occasions at which only officers were present.

    The tie was always black.
