    Hello,
    When it comes to Officers, they're wearing shoulder boards, not shoulder straps.
    Heer Officer shoulder boards for service or combat are matt grey, while Luftwaffe ones are shiny silver grey.
    Concerning NCOs shoulder straps, you can't make mistakes as Heer ones are made of Feldgrau woolen cloth, Luftwaffe ones are in grey-blue woolen cloth...
    Thanks
