    Some good points. In the latest photo the central stripe looks too dark to be the Westwall IMO.
    Regarding the wear of ribbons on the fliegerbluse, the buttoning up method is slightly differnt than on a regular tunic so a ribbonbar would be more practical than sewing a ribbon through a buttonhole that is hidden behind a flap.

    As another example of this, here is a photo of my uncle. He is wearing his Ostfront ribbon on his breast.

    Could it be a variant of one of these?

    A very extreme variant perhaps!
    That could make an intersting subject for another thread: Were any Germans decorated by the allies...........?

    Tunic would fasten right over left if negative was reversed......women's style.

    He doesn't look like the kind of guy who would wear a woman's tunic.

    Haven't a clue why the adler is on the wrong side.

    Happy New Year y'all.

    Gday all,
    Yes I see the logic in this practice.
    But It appears some placed a button hole ribbon on their blouses even if sewn on the top.

    I've now spent far to much time on this one so I'm calling it a day.

    Thanks for all the comments and discussion. You guys have probably seen enough of this thread, but I'm adding another photo of a Westwall ribbon recently photographed on my suit coat.... with a comparson of ribbons from grandpa's photos. Anyway in conclusion, I really do not know what that is.... but tend towards Westwall. Thanks for the observation regarding the placement of the eagle on his tunic. I never would have known until I placed the photo in this forum.
