    Default Dress bajonet with green felt and brown frog ?

    Got this one in my collection. Early Eickhorn, short, with staghandle. The scabbard has obviously been restored. It has got green felt in the slot, which as far as I know is army. But what about the Frog Luftwaffe ??
    Was luftwaffe the only ones to carry brown frogs ? There are no stamps on the frog.
    Thanks for all your help

    This subject of the frog has recently come up in a few posts on dress bayonets , I ran one of my own a couple months back and Adrian Stevenson stated that most felt found in Heer bayonets will be found in Red or Green,And if it is a Luftwaffe bayonet the green felt is used in bayonets by Aviation supervisory troops. If memory serves me correct the brown frog was issued to the Luftwaffe.

    Always on the look out for WW II Canadian Helmets and Cam nets to add to my collection.

    Found a Canadian Mk II Medics Helmet and yes I know they are about as rare as hens teeth !!!!!

    No !

    BTW, There´re felts in green, red, black, white and blue also.

    Most of all you can find red felts !

    Looks like a very nice and complete Luftwaffen dress bayonet with the green aviation supervisory troops felt plug,as noted by Mark.
    Heres a breakdown of the felt plug colors/formations:
    Wehrmacht,armed forces-red
    Jager formations - green
    Aviation troops- yellow
    Aviation supervisory troops-green
    Aviation communications troops-brown
    Flak formations-red

    This one arrived today.
    Luftwaffe, short model, WKC, red felt, brown frog, a little lifting to the plating but a very nice and honest patina.
    Enjoy
