WW2 SS uniform?

Article about: Thanks everyone. I knew it was authentic but had no idea these things were valuable until a few days ago when I started searching online. There's some writing on the back of the metal crest

    He was a bombardier. I think the parachute represents how he ended up as a POW.
    Thanks Sophie, that makes perfect sense.

    Look forward to seeing what else you find.

    I spoke with my aunt yesterday and she said at the end of the war
    the guys were told they could take anything they wanted from the camp and that's how he ended up with it. Her memory is pretty vague but she thinks there might be a photo of the officer it belonged to with his military stuff. I'm going to start sorting through things and see if I can find it.
    That's just remarkable. If there is truly a picture of the man it belonged to and/or a name to the owner, it makes this piece all the more special (and valuable, frankly). Of course we would love to see anything you dig up.

    Just a quick question about the sleeve eagle on the tunic, isn't that the army eagle not the SS eagle?

    It was quite common for SS officers to wear the army eagle.

    They do. These have, but the pic makes them look a little lighter.

    Cheers, Ade.
