The boards are Aviation. The tunic is either pioneer or technical branch

weitze listed it but it's been shown before on a forum or two...

Ah. Ok. So we have a aviation Tunis from an officer who served with the engeneer before. A lot of them wore there old tunics

Since 1915 all enegneer officers had Garde-Litzen. So he could serve with a engeneer of the line bataillon too.

Hello : Its a curious tunic . coarse wool cloth , the litzen ,are not of quality , altough are officers type . In 1915 the litzen for Engineers as for the doctors were weared with the bluse , with the Kunftige Friedensuniform they weared larger litze braided .the pre war Flugbataillons weared the technical troops uniform .with white buttons and collar litzen, the officers shoulderboards have grey backing and a interior piping white , red , yellow or light blue according with the numeration .

I'm not crazy about those large winged props and it looks like there were pips on these boards at one time.

Are the boards the only thing that worries? I'm not convinced the tunic was Aviation during WW1 but didn't see issue with the boards. I guess it does look like there were rank pips or something below the prop.

images found on line... sorry but don't know whose they are.

ccj : The last shoulderboards you have showed are of the first Fliegerbataillon , the officers ones for a Major, note the mouse grey backing and the white inner piping

Thanks, it would be nice to own a pair of the early pattern flieger boards with double underlay...
