  1. Hi everyone – here is another addition – a white summer tunic for a Luftwaffe Stabsingenieur. This one is made from a soft ribbed silk-like material. It is very soft, and very light weight. The insignia is all removable, including the collar tabs, which are held on by snaps (the tabs fit the snaps perfectly, and the snaps are not sewn through both layers of the collar, which gives me confidence that they have been with the tunic for a very long time). It is not named. This is only the second summer tunic for this branch that I have seen. Thanks! BC
  2. Hi all - I managed to twist MH's arm to part with his Fliegerbluse Thanks MH! Glad to have added it to my ingenieurkorps collection. Here are some extra pics. Cheers, BC
  3. A beauty of a cap there Bob - used to have one myself - Cheers BC
  4. Just showing my love again for these ones
  5. Hi all - some more recent pick ups. Firstly, this tunic for a fliegeroberingenieur. Unfortunately it is not named, but everything shows consistent wear and it looks like the insignia has been there forever. It is of a rather small size. Next up is a pair of breeches for a generalingenieur. You can see that the colour is ingenieurkorps and not General Staff. Lastly is this tab, for an NCO, essentially an engineering officer cadet. Unfortunately it is only the one and not a pair. Cheers, Brad
  6. Hi all - a comment over in the Luftwaffe Ingenieurkorps thread (see here) led me to raise a topic on Heer Pioneer / Engineer uniform items. To kick this one off, here are a number of uniform items that I own (or used to own) before I turned my focus to Luftwaffe Engineers: Feel free to post your own Heer Pioneer / Engineer items! Cheers, Brad C
  7. Some beautiful tunics MH - just sent you a message Thanks Ostprussenmann for your kind words on my tunic. Unfortunately the name tag was removed so I can’t research the history. A wound badge would make sense, I agree. A pilots badge is also a possibility. Before I collected Luftwaffe ingenieurkorps I collected Heer pioneer uniforms. I still have a few tunics and visors which I could post in another thread if there isn’t one already? cheers, Brad
  8. And another acquisition - a tunic for a flieger-hauptingenieur. Slowly working my way towards a tunic of each of the standard ranks - it's a lofty ambition, but technically I am half way...! Cheers, Brad C
  9. Hi all, Just acquired this one – a tunic for a Flieger-Stabsingenieur. The tunic unfortunately is not named. It is in good condition – a few moth nips but the insignia still looks very sharp. The pink and blue really do look good together! See the link below for more pictures: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?p=7861019#post7861019 Cheers, Brad C
  10. Some minor new additions to keep this thread ticking over: The Major's tabs have snaps on the back which suggests that they were on a summer uniform at some stage. Cheers, BC
  11. Hi all - just stumbled on this. If it's of interest, I own one of his tunics. A Holters waffenrock that was re-tailored. It's one of my favourites And the label it came with - Anyone have any other items of his or further research on his career? Cheers, Brad C
  12. I was able to purchase this set of tabs recently, a lovely set for a fligergeneralingenieur. These tabs at some point in their life got wet, which has rippled the material slightly. The wonderful thing about these to my eye are the mix of the gold bullion and celleon thread; the tarnishing of the bullion showing up in stark contrast to the bright celleon. This gives these tabs some wonderful character. And by way of comparison: I now only have one more set of tabs (senior sonderfuhrer) to obtain to get the complete set of tabs (boards on the other hand for the general ranks still elude me....) Cheers, BC
